A generous supersize pink salmon lay on top of Sapphire, the fish was meaty and had a moist melt in your mouth texture. The baby sweetcorn had a lovely crunch and sapphire added the saltiness when combined together. The clam chowder had strong distinctive taste.

I highly recommend the pancakes, dripping with sweet maple syrup, accompanied with ice cream topped with chocolate sprinkles. I only had a bite from my friend’s plate, and I loved the creamy buttery pancakes.

The beaver tails were an interesting dish; deep-fried dough in the shape of baguette baton, this one was tough to cut through even with a knife. You have a various choice of condiments to accompany the dish. Such as maple syrup, Nutella, peanut butter and jelly.
