Wonderful Views

The carvery style dining isn't a style we appreciate, but the buffet starter of assorted fish and seafood was a real treat. This plus the tremendous views over the bay whilst there were yachts sailing past really sold this restaurant to us.

Pleasant enough seafood starters, although no prawns. Mediocre selection of overpriced wines. Carvery with dry meat, skin on gravy, and overcooked, dry, rubbery roast potatoes.

Went the restaurant with the family, based on a recommendation. Traditional English fare was available; soup a cold cuts section, followed by a buffet style carvery (primarily beef and chicken). Went for the chicken, with all the usual accompaniments; roasted potatoes, vegetables, gravy etc. In truth was a little 'tired' - probably because it had been sat under the warming... More

I have to preface this review with the admission that the carnivore enjoyed their steak, hence two "stars" instead of one. I opted for the bar menu as the restaurant menu had only one unappetising vegetarian option. To start I had hummus and crudités, which was actually tahini (not hummus) served with celery, cucumber and peppers; very difficult to eat... More

We stayed at the Palace for B&B and have to say the breakfasts were reasonable but for the one evening meal we had, the whole experience was appalling. The start was poor because we had booked a table towards the front (the back is more bar area and a little gloomy) but the head waiter said it had to be... More

We booked a window table which wasn't reserved for us but fortunately one was still available so we were able to enjoy the view over the bay. We opted for the carvery rather than steaks and I helped myself to the prawns and salad bar. I would imagine that some less able diners would find it difficult to serve themselves... More

Middle of TT week and we expected this restaurant to be busy. We arrived a 8.00pm and there was only ten people in the restaurant. The display of starters looked reasonable, but the display of main courses looked most uninviting with the vegetables having been on display for sometime. Staff looked very bored! Perhaps we picked a bad night

First off the food was GREAT. I got a steak and both it and the chips(fries) and gravy that came with were so delicious. Use the gravy on the chips, NOT the steak, lol. Best steak I have had in ages. Unfortunately waiter was a stout older gentleman and he was overtly RUDE and snobby as hell. The other staff,... More

Lovely carvery choices, absolutely delicious. Dessert was amazing. The service was excellent, the waiters were so very polite and attentive. They were very helpful with the children who they loved having their own menu. The waiter even took away my toddler's plate and cutlery, I had brought, and saw that they were cleaned at his instigation.
