Overall we had a good evening here however, it is just a pub and I really did feel that things were overpriced. I had a lamb shank, which was fine but not the best I've had. It came with some cous cous and at £15, it was a bit too expensive. All sides were extra. Perhaps a good idea to... More

The restaurant provided us with a superb meal although the food could have been warmer. Perhaps a hot plate would have helped! Dessert was delicious. Staff very attentive! Beautiful view out to the sea. Toilets a big let down! Floors wet and one in particular needed attention. If this could be addressed I would change my review to full stars.

Called with no booking and was welcomed with open arms by a very polite waiter. The restaurant appeared busy so was surprised to be given a table. Staff were attentive and polite. Food arrived in a reasonable time and was hot and tasty. Will call again.

My husband and I had a very disappointing first visit to Percy French this time last year with terrible service and below average food but after hearing positive reviews from friends who had visited since, we decided to give it another go. I'm pleased to say that this experience shattered our previous disappointments! The food is exactly what it claims... More
