Food was fine. The only thing that let it down was we had to send 2 glasses back as they had lipstick marks on, I feel like they should be a bit more diligent on cleaning with what's happening. It was a bit gross.
Other than that the service was fast and food great

It's been too long since we visited Stoop Your Head, and it was great to see the place buzzing now that outdoor dining has reopened. There are tables available on their gorgeous outdoor terrace and along the front of the restaurant overlooking the harbour. The food, as always, was excellent and the service was fantastic.

It was so lovely to return to outdoor dining. The crab claws & scampi were outstanding and the weather played ball so overall a really lovely experience. The girls, Audrey, Sonia and Laura were so welcoming and it was an absolute pleasurable 1 hr 45 mins. Can't wait to return again.

As per usual the food was great and the staff lovely and welcoming. We chose to sit outside as there were roof heaters but unfortunately it was very cold. A couple of the stand up gas ones would make such a difference.
