We booked a table for Sunday lunch and enjoyed every moment. Three roasts available, beautifully cooked by the owner Louise and served with every attention by Becky. My partner's 91 year-old mother is a connoisseur of Sunday roasts and didn't stop raving over it ! Then to the 4" high lemon meringue pie ! Melt-in-the-mouth is not overstated. We've also... More

Arrived pretty late and was greeted with lovely welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and even cooked us a lovely snack although the kitchen was well closed.! Definitely recommend and hope to go back. Best of luck to Louise and her new venture, you're doing a fantastic job.!

This has been our first visit to this particular hotel, but DEFINITELY will not be the last. Situated on marine drive, Preston sands, it's in perfect location on the beach, literally. Given the amount of different establishments around the area, it's difficult for anyone to find the right one that caters for them, but here a lovely warm welcome is... More
