This is a real jewel among the Blakeney restaurants. We booked when I decided on a short break here and we were very glad we did. The food was excellent., service good, not too obtrusive, hopefully we will return.

The food is excellent and very well presented in lovely surroundings. But the thing that really puts the icing on the cake is the amazing staff, so attentive and professional, despite how... More

What a lovely place, excellent food, service and wine list. I had Sea Bass with Shrimp Rice and my wife, the Hake. Great to see green veg served, plus fantastic potato duaphinouise. The puddings were superb.The best meal of the week, a great finish to a brilliant holiday.
