    "not been back for past two seasons"
    It's changed a lot and gone up market, or was that 3 seasons ago?
    Great for lunch on a sunny day, fish n chips n Guiness very reasonable and good quality.
    I like it for lunch anyway, if I can get a table!

    Has it changed hands? Hey! That'll be good! Maybe I'll give it another try this season. Anyone else been there lately?

    On second thoughts.....since its now really hard to get an outside table at lunchtime...I wouldn't recommend it at all, in fact it's rubbish you'd hate it

    Probably...

    Actually, it was always difficult getting a table in summer, that was not the prob, the issue was being a year round customer (often by road rather than by sea) and STILL getting $hit service and value for money.

    It's waitress service now, very efficient.
    Lots of hooray Henry's in the holiday homes though go there. It's promoted as an oyster bar. I sail over from the Fal regularly and have never had a bad meal.

    Will I be ok if I drag my 'Blue One' out of the locker and fly that instead then? Or will they all clam up when we walk in?

    p.s. WTF is an 'Oyster Bar' BTW? A bar that happens to have oysters on the 'me an u' or summat special?

    In the UK, in my limited experience here, calling some place an 'Oyster Bar' usually means 6x grade fours the French wouldn't touch, at 6 times the price, 'champagne' ditto.

    Now in St Vaast or Paimpol, they don't call them anything but restaurants, and there is always the oyster coop shop or the market, for a brilliant lunch at a table outside, or on board, according to the state of the purse!

    Do you think our red defaced flown stiffly like a samuari pennon from the boat or tender stern would help cause clam imitations too?
    As in;
    ' Oh Darharling, look at all those gwubby, damp sailors getting out of that little wubber thing, Oh No, they're being sat next to our table- how fwightful, dont look at them, Gervaise, or Mummy will smack you. Weally, their kind shouldn't be allowed in hear at all'.

    BTW thats usually usually our reception in Weatherspoons, Gosport, on a winter Fri/Sat night from the tatooed ones!

    Hoping to get to Plymouth at end of May, then on to Scillies, and cruise back, if all well. May see you w&tp, if you don't keep a sharp weather eye open.

Apparently it will be closed at the end of this summer to undergo a major refurbishment. Their aim is to keep everything simple this year, but do everything really well and at reasonable prices...
    super, will be giving it a go in the summer, was put off that place a couple of years ago. Usually go to HRSC or Five Pilchards by boat. Five Pichards is great and easily accessible from where we stay in Gillan. Usually get decent pints in the New Inn too.
