    We sat down for a business lunch and didn't know what to pick so the excellent waiting staff suggested we try the tapas selection. As steady stream of small plates came quickly to the table and every dish was better than the last. Had a very varied selection of meat and vegetarian options and every single one was amazing. Every whim was catered from the waitresses who were excellent. My boss was over from the US and already asked me to book it for the next time he is over in two years time. :)

    Best lunch I’ve had in a long time. As vegan I have had many falafel and hummus wraps. This was the best I’ve ever had fresh homemade falafel and perfect seasoning already thinking about when I can have again. Also the vegan salted caramel cake was Delicious and a lovely treat. Will be back

    We had a lovely meal. The food was excellent and well presented. We especially enjoyed the Tuscan chicken. The chicken melted in your mouth and was full of flavour. Service was very good, young waitress knowledgeable about the menu and was very pleasant and attentive. We have been regular visitors to the Selkie since it opened but, due to a couple of bad experiences due to service, hadn't been back in a while. Happy to find it's back to it's best.

    I've been to the Selkie lots of times and I love it. I'd decided to take family there for dinner . I was a bit worried I'd hyped it up too much and that it would be a disappointment but luckily I was wrong. It was probably the best dinner I've ever had. The menu had changed a bit since the last time I was there so there were new things to try. The waitress kept us right with how many plates to order - we went for 3 per person plus bread and olives and were stuffed afterwards. We didn't have room for dessert but had absolutely lovely cocktails to finish. As usual, the service was fab and the place was full. As always, I can't fault the Selkie. It's just fab. Thanks for having us.

    The waitress kept forgetting about our table, missed out items that we ordered. Had to ask for it again which didn’t arrive until we were half way through our meal. Asked for the bill and she forgot so had to ask another member of staff. She overall just seemed like she didn’t want to be there in general. Food was ok but honestly not worth the money at all.

    We had a fantastic family meal at The Selkie and the only problem we had was trying to choose a favourite dish! The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious and perfectly varied. All the dishes arrived quickly and in no particular order, in typical tapas style, which allowed us all to try all the dishes and led to a very enjoyable meal. This wasn’t our first visit and we’re already looking forward to our next visit!
