Loved by itisoners  

“Would recommend The Big Mussel for a good meal.” 

“Booked through Itison and really enjoyed our food. Restaurant was busier than we thought it would be at 1pm but the single waiter kept everyone happy. Great service and great food!”

“We have dined at The Big Mussel twice in the past and on both occasions the quality of food has been superb. Can't recommend this eatery enough. Brilliant.”
