Back in the day, it didn't need to be a special occasion to enjoy a plate of oysters with a pint of stout by the sea. We're keeping the dockyard spirit alive by serving you simple, fresh shellfish, craft beer - brewed onsite - and wine in a relaxed environment, any day of the week.

Restaurant

Beer garden

In 2016, we became a freehouse. So now we can offer you an even wider range of beers both on tap and in bottles.  And in 2018, we installed a little brewery in our basement so we have our own brews (Larrikin) on tap as standard.

What's on

For announcements on special events, please check out our social media channels or sign up to our mailing list.

We'll only e-mail you if it's big.

On Mondays and Tuesdays, our kitchen takes a rest so it's a good day for events. If you would like to hold one, please contact us.

 

Menus

We have two core menus: Regulars and Specials.

The Regular Menu is where you'll find our signature dishes. Consistent and simple.

 

Our Specials change more often. This is where our Chef gets creative.

 Reservations

Booking policy

 

We plan to open our restaurant indoors after the 17th May (in line with the Government's "Re-Opening Roadmap"). At that point, online bookings will be made available. Until then, only the garden is available for bookings. Future bookings are subject to any changes introduced by the Government.

  • Bookings for 2-4 people are for 2hours, for 5-6 people, up to 2.5hrs.

  • We allow one reservation per person per day

  • All our bookable outdoor tables are covered, with a heater.

  • Dogs are welcome in the garden, however we are not able to accommodate them in the restaurant. 

  • Feel free to call us for last minute bookings as they do sometimes become available.

  • We always have a few "walk-in" tables available on a first come first served basis too. So even if the calendar is showing fully booked, you may well find a table if you just rock up :-)

 
 
 

Beer

We love beer. Nick loves it so much he started brewing his own. In August 2018 we  installed a micro-brewery in the basement so now you will always find our own beer (Larrikin) on tap.

Just like our food menus we have beers that are on regularly, and a wide range of continually updating craft beers.

Wine

Our good friend and wine expert, Harry, has looked after our wine list in recent years.

Our regular list focuses on wines that match well with our shellfish. We also offer a changing specials list, most recently featuring whites from Mediterranean coastal areas.
