Visited this restaurant twice today and would highly recommend this friendly place with excellent food. Found this on the last day of our holidays and wish I had found it earlier. Will definitely visit next year. Thank you for opening slightly early and thank you for the umbrella.

We went there when we were on Holiday last week, and the food didn't meet the required standard. We had the chicken curry which was watery and tasteless.

Once again we visited this restaurant and found it has obviously "made it". Each evening was fully booked and the food is good and well prepared and presented. The steak and kidney pie is still my favourite. One problem, however, is that, being fully booked, the temperature in the restaurant can be uncomfortably high. It still is my favourite place,...

Spending a day in Minehead after alighting from the West Somerset railway we chanced upon this restaurant. We were with two friends and the lunch menu looked enticing. We all had wonderful meals at a very reasonable price. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful. I would certainly recommend this restaurant and will use it again when in... More

I ate here last week. I was staying at Butlins and didn't want to eat onsite, so drove the 5 mins down the road to this restaurant - which I found via trip adviser. The restaurant was full when we arrived with the only seat being the one by the door, but we didn't mind taking it. I ordered the... More

We popped in on Friday for some lunch after getting off the train. Despite being inundated with choice of eateries this caught our eye. We were offered a table for four and our youngest son mentioned colouring (which we didn't have) and the kind waitress brought out two colouring books. We were offered the full menu, light lunch menu and... More
