I took the missus for a meal one evening, and to be fair it was fairly late on. We ordered our drinks and our food. And I have to admit the food was just not up to scratch when you compare it to the price. But credit where credit is due, the place is in a top notch location with... More

Plenty of effort has been put into the food and menu all served in a lovely location. Starters of goats cheese bruschetta and prawn cocktail with smoked salmon both excellent.Mains of hake with samphire and leeks was good, fish and chips a little disappointing as it lacked flavour. Children loved the gougons and chips. Desserts of ice cream very good... More

Ate here Sunday 12th July with my husband. We arrived without a booking and it was really busy but were prepared to wait for a table. The staff got us seated as soon as they could and this gave us time to browse the delicious menu. We had mains of pan fried hake and roast pork both in beautiful sauces... More

What a location. The view from the dining room is fab looking out on to the water. Great food, service is always excellent! I especially love the goats cheese starter with beetroot ice cream...yummy! We also attended a wedding party here and I have to say it was one of the most intimate weddings I have ever been at. Just... More

Lovely afternoon tea of homemade sweet treats including cakes and buns, scone, and selection of finger sandwiches. The staff provided excellent customer service ensuring that we had plenty of tea.

Great atmosphere, beautiful location and very friendly staff. The vegetarian tart tatin was cooked to perfection and stuffed with beautiful roast veg. Pannacotta was perfect - and anyone who has watched Master Chef knows how difficult it is to get this right. :)

I was really looking forward to eating here. We had the early bird menu, which I have to say is good value. Amazing views it has to be said. However my burger was so tough and the roll dry. No relish on it at all. The chips were dry and inedible. I love chips, but ate 3 and left the... More
