    We had a very enjoyable Sunday lunch in the Purty Kitchen. I had the prawn open sandwich, and my partner had mussels - both delicious. Easy to get a table at this time of year (February). Service was brilliant - our excellent waiter was Auguste from Brazil!

    Nice ambience and good service. Lighting was quite low so needed phone torch to read menu. Mains were fish pies which were very good, starter was calamari with garlic mayo, really good but portion size was a little bit skimpy

    First time eating in the Purty Kitchen and it was terrific. Loved the food especially the chicken wings, the sea bass and the lemon dessert. All of the staff we met were wonderful. Bottles of wine are a tad expensive but otherwise we enjoyed a super night out.

    Service is overall very good, everyone is very nice and welcoming. The food is lacking for price (given the location). Starters are small for price. Mains, although plating was appealing, fish (Halibut Special of the day) was great, but everything else in the plate was there for scenery, no connection whatsoever. Pasta (Linguini with smoked paprika and shrimp) was OK but taste to paprika was intense.

    Fab evening, had a problem with the chips not been hot and when replaced they brought bigger bowls, which I think you should get or have the option to have. Everything else was just Fab and the guy serving us could not do enough to make it a most enjoyable evening

    The Purty Kitchen is a must-go spot for us every time we are home from Oz. Food, ambience and service were at the usual very high levels. My young son became unwell while we were there and we were blown away by the staff’s care for him. Well done team!
