This uncomplicated seafood restaurant is set in the idyllic village of Orford. The focus of this unpretentious, no frills restaurant is unashamedly centred on the fish landed in the village that morning. The decor is simple, the tables packed together and the chairs on the cheaper side of comfortable but picking fault in this is missing the point. You are here for the fish.
I started out with a plate of 6 very large oysters. I love oysters and these didn't disappoint.
Following on from the oysters was skate wing in a brown butter with capers. In keeping with the restaurant the dish was simple yet effective and focused on satisfying the taste buds rather than the eyes.
Desert was an excellent homemade sticky toffee pudding and ice cream.
The concise wine list was predominately offered white wines with a handful of red and rose. We enjoyed the Italian rose and the German riesling that we drank.
