Arriving for lunch we were dismayed to see a notice on the lift door. Out of Order. Faced with two steep flights of stairs to climb we nearly left the quay side. I am glad we made the effort. The waiters were most attentive. There was plenty of choice on the menu. I chose the £3.95 special 3course menu. I didn't accept the soup knowing that the carbonara would be sufficient for my small appetite. It was delicious! My friend enjoyed salmon and a small salad. We shared chips and a pizza. There was a happy atmosphere with young families enjoying their meals. It was not noisy. There was no disturbing background music. The comfortable seating was nicely spaced, some having a riverside view. The disabled toilet was clean, well lit and roomy. There didn't seem to be any disabled car parking spaces and people going to the fish quay shared the car park We shall come again soon.

A nice menu with good service. It is a nice place to sit and look along the river which it is located next to. The specials are always good value for money so you dont have to break the bank to enjoy the food. The is a car park on site so no worries about parking. A few minutes from the city centre so it is easy to get there as well.

Had the most amazing steak there. The small menu itself didn't have much stand out stuff to choose from. But on the chalkboards on the wall was some amazing choices. Friendly staff and a river view seat make it a great place.

The food is okay but i prefer the southshields restaurant, my mother's food came out a bit on the cold side and had to be reheated, nice atmosphere, I would still come again.

Try one of the great fish dishes they do in addition to the usual menu since the fish comes straight from the port next door.
