I visited The Raft with 2 friends last Thursday evening. We were greated enthusiastically by Danny on arrival and seated in a cosy booth. The food was delicious. I had the fish soup to start with followed by mussles and felt I had chosen well. Our meal was washed down with plenty of wine and all three of us had... More

Had lunch on a Saturday, we were greeted by Denny with a warm friendly smile, the inside was very inviting, you could say it is trendy, shabby chic or a little kitsch, but my friend and I found it very appealing. As soon as we were seated we were given a bottle of cold water with our menus, on the... More

We had an amazing meal here last night. Incredible food ( would particularly recommend The Raft fish soup and meringue). Great atmosphere, will definitely be back. Highly recommend. Worth making a reservation in advance.

I took my wife for an Anniversary/Birthday meal. We asked for a window seat that was kindly honoured. We had a shared starter (board meeting) that was first class. We also enjoyed a bottle of Marlborough White that we can highly recommend. We both had Calzone as a main (mine being the special) that we both devoured as they were... More

Had lunch here on a Sunday, very friendly service! Food was just amazing, shared a Pizza and a Starter of Baked Camembert. Presentation and flavor was outstanding. Because the mains were so good we decided to go for a dessert (which we normally don't get when out). They have 3 homemade deserts to choose from and also offer all 3... More

Another restaurant recommended to us at another good choice. Food was superb, staff & service was superb and great value for money. The owner is a really nice guy and his partners taste in decor really suits the restaurant. Shabby Chic done perfectly.

We have eaten here at all times of the day. Breakfasts are good, but they excel at their pizzas. I am not a pizza lover, in fact I usually avoid them, but these are something else (in a good way!). Not the normal combinations served here. If you fancy something different, then this is the place to go. Their other... More
