Description: Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since 1990. The restaurant is in an beautiful position with views of the bustling harbour.The Tudor beams and stone walls of the listed building have a traditional feel but are complemented by contemporary decor. The food is very definitely in the 21st century, an eclectic mix of ideas from British cuisine, with a touch of French and some Asian influence as well, always using the freshest, local produce. Seafood is much in evidence, as you would expect, but meat, game and poultry feature too.All this mixed with exciting wines and cocktails and friendly and attentive service and a really personal touch from the hands on owners make this a venue to remember. We are always happy to discuss your requirements for special celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and we will be pleased to design a special menu just for you.NOW OPEN EVERY EVENING.

Whilst on a short break we thought we would treat ourselves to a meal out in a good restaurant. We had read the reviews about Mallams and decided to give it a try.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed our food. We are slightly puzzled about who amongst our staff would have made you feel so uncomfortable as all of them are trained to ensure that our customers receive the highest quality of care.

Another fantastic evening at Mallams, food was very good with wine to match. I had crab cakes, Brill and Mallams pudd ( my favourite). Eat here only if you enjoy good food cooked with passion and creativity and you are not inspired by Weatherspoons

Because of the occasion we pushed the boat out somewhat, so our bill was quite high. Having said that we had a fantastic meal. So after champagne cocktails we both had fish to start and as a main course. I can't remember when I've had a finer fishy meal. Perfectly cooked with just the right amount of sauces and accompanying... More

Having looked at the reviews on this restaurant we decided to give it a try. The food was very good although a little pricey for what you get, but overall pretty good.
