At certain times of the year, you’d never know you were in good old Blighty: there are bobbing yachts and boats in the Marina, outside tables under large sunshades, the sparkling lights of restaurants, bars and cafes lining the cobbled quayside.........but then the menu is a bit of a giveaway, a pan-european selection filtered through British taste. Spaghetti Bolognese (£11.00) might be unknown in Bologna but it’s a staple here along with lasagne and spaghetti carbonara. Scallops are cooked in white wine, garlic and cream and served with rice; grilled fillet of sea bass as well as grilled chicken breast come with chickpea ratatouille; and blackened grilled cod is covered in Cajun spices and served with tzatziki and hand-cut chips (£13.00). There are homemade meatballs (£6.00) and homemade chicken and seafood paella with chorizo (£16.00). The formula obviously works well: it’s always busy and friendly, although the cooking has received mixed online reviews.
