We enjoyed our first visit to the Lighthouse Restaurant, an ideal place for a relaxed night out with friends. The atmosphere is buzzy and informal. The menu is interesting with some creative variations on the standard gastro tuck.. We particularly enjoyed the duck leg confit on a bed of Thai vegetables. The lamb with couscous and aubergine was very tasty... More

Been here tons of times. I will be really disappointed if I am proved right, but I feel this place is going off a bit. The food is still very good, but before it was excellent. And the service has become rather patchy whereas it used to be invariably excellent. I am not sure if the management has changed, perhaps... More

Great selection of food and wine. Seasonal variations and knowledgeable staff make this a very pleasant place to visit. It has a drawing room feel. Can get noisy but that is all part of the atmosphere.

Staying locally and wanted somewhere within walking distance, was impressed with the food. The lamb was cooked to perfection. Desert offerings tasty, always tempted by anything chocolate and wasn't disappointed. Good wine list and service efficient. Expensive but not ridiculously, great for a catch up with friends.

Went to celebrate my birthday with my husband and we had an amazing evening. The atmosphere was lovely and the service was just right, lovely and attentive but letting us enjoy on our own. They recommend me a couple of wines with my meal and the match was excellent. Food was delicious without complications. Overall a memorable birthday dinner. We... More

We have been here many times over the years and have always rated it. But this time they seem to have crammed more tables in and had us all sitting elbow to elbow, at odds with the previously airy atmosphere. We also had a very patronising Eastern European waitress. Food and wine good as always.

I booked the Light House for a celebratory lunch after my wedding. Despite the large group (40 covers) the service was impeccable. Gosia put us at ease and put together a menu to suit our occasion and budget. She gave us great advice about the wine list (which was spot on!) She even offered us options of table linen and... More

Went with a group of 8 for a special occasion. Attentive staff provided a good level of service and well-paced throughout. 3 people had the early evening menu (order before 7.30) and rest went a la carte. All the food was well presented and tasty. Highlights were the belly pork and lamb. With a bottle of Prosecco and 3 cheapish... More
