A great view and amazing veggies

The first night of our vacation and we were looking for someplace to eat. We stopped at one place, which I will not name, and was turned away stating they had no openings until 8:15 (it was 5:30 and almost every table was open with perhaps 3 groups of people dining). We ended up going to The... read more

We stayed on an overnight package at the hotel which included dinner. The menu for this was good the food served excellent and I paid a very small fee to have the rump steak which was also excellent and well worth the payment. Creme brulee was excellent according to my wife who is the world's leading expert on these desserts... More

Went here for dinner during a stay at the hotel. Every time we approached the desk (also a couple times for breakfast) there was never anyone there to greet us and we had to seek them out. The server was unknowledgeable about the menu and we had to ask for the bread twice (the second time after our main course... More

Excellent food (dinner and breakfast). We had the table de home menu for dinner, it was very reasonable and food was delicious. Try to get a table by window for a great view of harbour from restaurant. The staff were really lovely.

Really special afternoon tea with ample refills of tea, but the best bit was the children's afternoon tea! Gorgeous with little mini plates, cups and tea pot. Jam sandwiches, chocolate coated strawberries and marshmallows! Quite a long wait to be served but the adults scones seemed freshly baked so it was worth the wait. Really really special

Back in the days when Garry Rhodes was 'cheffing' at The Castle Hotel in Taunton one could get an afternoon tea to die for. Today we tried the afternoon tea at the Waterfront on Dover Beach. The cakes were good and what the sandwiches gained on the roundabouts of fillings was lost on the thickness of the pappy Mother Pride... More

We walked in off the street and had a typical buffet breakfast sat on the veranda overlooking the harbour. A beautiful view in very nice surroundings and the buffet breakfast was well presented with a good choice on offer. The main problem with this type of meal is that the bacon and sausages had been sitting around on a hot... More

Great food and attentive staff. We had a window table and a decent ish view over the harbour. Nice steak with Stilton sauce, cooked very well and to my taste.Recommended place to eat but you will need to book really, generally on check in to the Hotel. Had breakfast here the following day, at the same table as the night... More
