The drinking half of this pub is panelled wood, the dining half carpeted. The décor is fairly modern, with bright lighting.  At a recent visit, smoked haddock and mussel chowder was very good indeed, with none of the powdery texture that often dogs poor chowder. Instead there were chunks of well-cooked haddock and mussels, in a creamy sauce with fresh chopped chives (12/20). A Caesar salad was also a cut above the norm, with good leaves and dressing (13/20). Smoked salmon is never a great test of a kitchen but it was fine here, while the grilled fillet of mackerel I had was cooked carefully with new potatoes, crisp green beans and a light mustard sauce. The three mackerels were draped artistically over the central heap of potato and a little green salad (13/20). The wine list was acceptable e.g. Firesteed Pinot Noir for £18.50, most wines around the £15 mark, even a dessert wine sold by the glass. Far better than I was expecting – I have eaten much, much worse in many restaurants. 

I last ate here in November 2002, when sadly the experience was less favourable than the notes above.
