    My daughter got seafood pie and she really liked it. My wife got Fish and chips and the fish was really lovely with light batter, she really liked it. I got open sandwich-fresh prawns on brown bread with salad. Prawns were beautiful, brown bread wasn't great, stale and dry, salad leaves were drenched in some kind of dressing with too much vinegar, tomatoes were OK, grated beetroot was covered in some kind of brown sauce/ dressing which I did not like at all. For €27 I would have expected the bread and salad to be better than it was. Maybe fresh coleslaw and avocado would complement the prawns and taste nicer. That's just my opinion. Overall we were happy with the service, the atmosphere and the food in general.

    We had an early booking and one of our party was slightly delayed. I didn't like the fact that we were being asked constantly when our guest would be arriving as they needed to turn the table at 7pm sharp. I understand that bookings need to be kept but it did make the whole evening very rushed and uncomfortable. The food was nice and came out quickly but next time I might make a double booking just so we can relax more and not be rushed.

    The venue is a good location but the level of cleanliness in the outdoor extension was poor, drinking glasses and general glazing smudged. Single chair's are plastic and uncomfortable. The heating system not good, area was feeling cool.

    It's a bit expensive but not overpriced.. was busy, grear atmosphere, lovely staff, very knowledgeable and willing to help.. the outside part is just as warm if not warmer than inside ever since it was properly built on. I requested a gluten free menu which was a condensed adapted version of the actual menu. However we shared the Fried Squid bites which were amazing.. my better half had the cod and prawn from the regular menu and I went cod provencale which was very nice, I will say I felt it was swimming in too much sauce and was slightly overcooked but that's just a minor thing, not too many alcohol free beers on the menu. Plenty of great wines so my wife had the Rioja.. we were very tempted with the Sticky Toffee Pudding which didn't disappoint.. one of the nicest sticky Toffee puddings I've ever tasted.. well worth the visit. Looking forward to going back.

    We enjoyed the service and the attention. The starters and the main courses were outstanding and we are very happy overall.The only thing that we found a bit disappointing were the asides, as we expected the potatoes to be fresh and they weren't.

    My friend and I had lunch in Stoop your Head. We both opted for Cod Fritte which was delicious. There were three pieces of fish in a light batter and we both had chips. The special dessert was Apple Crumble with a delicious nutty topping with cream on the side. I finished up with a flat white and my friend had a cappuccino. It was a lovely experience. We will be back.
