    A nice venue, good service and an interestingly different menu from the normal. The food was served quickly and was hot, perhaps a little on the expensive side for plain fish and chips/pie and chips.

    An extremely busy venue, but despite that, I found the service to be prompt, courteous and delivered with a smile

    Really delicious food. A lot of fish/ seafood options. I had moules marinaire, my daughter had a shrilankan curry, 1 son had a seafood basket of squid, scampi etc, another son had a burger, husband had a chicken and bacon salad. We sat outside in the sunshine at 4.30 pm. Relaxed atmosphere. Reasonably expensive but good quality food is worth paying for.

    Context: We had a party of 4 adults and 1 child, we ordered 2 starters and 4 main meals, with 3 soft drinks and water at the table - our bill came in at just under £200. Pros: The restaurant is set in a lovely location, there is a friendly atmosphere and the staff are very welcoming. The food came quickly and your dog is welcome inside (a dog menu is available, which is a nice touch) Cons: The food is a little expensive for what you get, which is nothing special! I had salmon, herby potatoes and vegetables- it tasted fresh however it was really quite bland and came with no sauce to tie the meal together. My husband had the pie and was also left a little disappointed! The others at our table seemed happy enough but they were our guests so probably wouldn't comment. We would only visit again (perhaps to give it another go) if we were in the area (as we can take our dog in.) However we wouldn't go out of our way to visit again!

    It seems like Clavellss have upped their game recently and the food was excellent. In particular, the bread was freshly baked and came with some beautiful home-made humus. If you're a dog owner, you're going to be made to feel very welcome as is your dog in fact, they even have a dog menu! The service was excellent and friendly, although it's a shame that like many restaurants these days, they add on a 20% service charge to the bill which of course most people feel awkward about asking to be removed and therefore don't.

    Met up with other family members for lunch. The menu was very interesting although not extensive. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Service was excellent but unobtrusive. Portion size meant that there was no room for desert. We would definitely eat there again.
