This restaurant is a hidden gem. I must have walked past it a hundred times to and from the station but never "saw" it. On spec i decided to take 2 friends and booked online. The restaurant is subterenial but doesn't feel closed in or like someone's basement. Its tastefully furnished and the tables are decently spaced. The food was delicious. Being primarily a seafood specialist, we all opted for fish dishes - smoked salmon, and scallops with cauliflower cake (a new experience for me). Two of us also had the haddock with creamed potatoes which was incredible. The 3rd member of the party had hake which looked amazing too. We weren't going to have dessert as it was actually a very substantial meal, but then the waiter uttered the immortal words "cherry Bakewell tart with pistachio ice cream" - poor poor diet....

On the issue of the waiter - this gentleman was old school perfection. I wish I'd got his name as he was possibly thee best waiter I've been served by in years - and better than some 5* hotels!. I willl definitley be going back here. The food was wonderful and not hugely expensive until the 2 bottles of wine were added. - ahem!
