Lunch

Superb lunch venue. Staff were really helpful and sat outside in the sunshine was lovely. The view at the back is great. The food was very tasty and the wine ice cold. It was busy too which is always a good sign.

Negative : all fish meals were very poor - scallops as starter, fish cake and fish and chips were below average. No taste, bad presentation. Peas purée with cumin is a disaster. On positive side, fillet steak was good and wine list is reasonably priced. Overall, quite pretentious and pricey for a poor meal.

Sat out on the deck overlooking the estuary for a beautiful meal! Service was good and the tempura prawns and sea bass were delicious!

A Saturday evening was very busy,but worth it for the views. Shame the menu was the same as last year. A bit overpriced, my steak at £25 was tiny. The deserts we had were a big dissapointment. They sounded great on the menu,but we're no more than a pre done trifle. We hade different deserts but they were just the... More

Whilst we encourage reviews, we do expect them to be honest and accurate. In addition to our signature dishes our menu currently has four new starters and three new mains and is not "the same as last year". Regarding the desserts that " .... Were just the same ...... Tasteless mush" We have a chocolate pot, a citrus lemon pot,... More

This restaurant has an amazing view and we enjoyed dinner on the decking overlooking the estuary earlier this week. Don't be put off by the fact that you can't see into the restaurant when you arrive and have to walk down two flights of stairs when you arrive - it's all worth it! The restaurant also has a separate piece... More

Very biased as it was a beautiful sunny day but you could barely believe this was England! Palm trees in the garden and sandy beach in the distance! Whilst relatively expensive the service was great and food couldn't be faulted- it was amazing.

we went for dinner & stayed an hour. Food was good, but restaurant lacked atmosphere. Staff did their job, but nothing more, disappointing. Won't go back, despite the amazing location.

Really lovely modern bar &'restaurant overlooking the inlet. Interesting menu with Asian influences, fish, steak etc, some classics & unusual but delicious combinations. Great wine choices & drinks , really lovely fresh desserts. Crab & prawn cocktail was excellent. Outside terrace for when the weather is good.

We were refused a table at the Jetty for rather spurious reasons so decided to go back to Dickandwills (4 years since our last visit). So glad we did; the host was most amiable and made us very welcome in contrast with the Jetty experience. The food was really good. Mrs I&G had the mushroom burger and I had the... More

With a crisp cool interior and a balcony enjoying delightful views this is an attractive and enjoyable place to eat. Not cheap.The food is an imaginative fusion of the traditional ( with a twist here and there) and Asian and Mediterranean, mainly fish and seafood based based. My tempura seafood starter was light and tasty and the paella main course... More
