Though we went for dinner, if you have the chance, definitely go in the day time. The view from Bannisters is completely worth it and you can’t see much of it all in darkness. Rick Stein’s restaurant has a sitting room with his cookbooks, a fireplace, big comfy couches and even a glass chessboard. If you like sitting and reading, this is the place for you. If you like freshly caught and prepared seafood, book a table in his restaurant. There are lots of quirky seaside elements such as old, cut up bottles and wicker style baskets or netting that make up the lampshades, there are plenty of sandy tones like the tables and chairs and the waiters wear an endearing uniform of sandy coloured trousers, white shirts and some wore suspenders with a full apron over the top. If you are allergic to fish, it's probably a good idea to find another venue. If you love fish, or are just getting used to it, be sure to go for the scallops, prawns, sashimi, battered fish, crab, lobster and mixed seafood linguine. Ask your waiter for a recommendation on wine to enjoy with your meal and they will more than happily oblige. The manager and waiters were all very lovely and we were even able to meet the chef who seemed very nice and happy to chat to us. Bannisters also showed support for other local businesses, interested to hear where we had been and where we were going and even had a few suggestions on places for us to visit. Thank-you Rick Stein at Bannisters, we really had a lovely time dining in your restaurant.
