Amazing delicious food and attentive service. Very noisy however as we came in on the end of an all afternoon party so guests were still there. Would have been nice to be told that Although did book online. Great eclectic little mood lit joint can see guests lingering all night. Cocktails little expensive for size but drinks menu massive.

Had a fabulous meal, staff were excellent , loved the ambience, as soon as you opened the door, you knew you were on to a winner. The selection of whiskeys was amazing. The only down side was the music on a Tuesday night, was too loud, could not really talk, the musicians need to be aware that they are playing in a confined space. Overall a great night out & will be back.

What a wonderful find in Palm Beach. Great atmosphere, we had the share plates - each dish was amazing, different flavors and presented well. Service was fantastic with staff knowledgeable about what they were serving. Will definitely dine there again, great place for dining with a group of friends or a couple.

This 'hidden' establishment in Palm Beach is a fabulous venue to imbibe with friends and associates. The staff are extremely accommodating and knowledgeable, decor is eccentric vintage nautical. Dress up or go casual...everything works here. Food is great. Mrs Hornblower and my good self usually partake in entrees at the bar. Scotch eggs are to die for as is the Deep Fried Zucchini Flower and the DF Olives. Would recommend to any local or visitor to the coast. Horatio Hornblower.

I brought my husband along for a surprise birthday dinner as he is a whiskey lover. As soon as we walked through the door I knew I had made the right choice! We felt like we had been transported to an old pub in Scotland, everything felt so authentic. The whiskey list was incredible and we’ve been talking about the food for days now. Loved every bit. Definitely a hidden gem.
