The Deal

A selection of olives (usually £3.50) and warm breads (£3.50) opens up a range of three-course possibilities. Starters include a chicken and gnocchi gratin (£5.95) and calamari served with a lemon mayonnaise (£6.25). For the main course, diners can choose between potted crab with salad and half a pint of prawns (£15.50), or a whole local lobster picked from the tank, which is then pan friend before being oven baked with cheese, Tabasco and breadcrumbs (£30). Alternatively, non-seafood dishes include a 16oz sirloin steak served with chips and green beans (£17.50). Sweet teeth can delight in a selection of desserts, such as a chocolate and pecan brownie (£6.50) or an amaretto panna cotta (£4.95).
