Sloooow service, good food, good people

We waited around 45 mins for lunch, which was just a bit too long with hungry kids. The barman was very lovely and the food was very good for a quick bite in the sun.

We chose this amongst several possibilities because it was a beautiful, warm and sunny day, and there were two plane tres to provide shade, so we could pretend to be in France for a little while. The food was very good (omelette and scallops with chorizo, followed by a delicious Dorset apple cake with cinnamon and cream to share). I've... More

We also had desserts which were very good as well. We could not fault the food or the service which was also friendly and efficient. A... More

Excellent tapas, friendly service,delicious white chocolate cheesecake - cant rate this experience highly enough. Family owned and run, there are only a handful of inside tables so do book to ensure you don't miss out.

Firstly apologies as I wrote my review to the restaurant next door I went to the Crows last Tuesday with my two teenagers. The sun was shining so we sat outside in the square and listened to a beautiful singer who happened to be there by chance. The service and food were amazing. A mixture of very fresh calamari that...
