The best that can be said about this restaurant - if you are seated in the larger, dog-friendly but soulless "bar" area - is that there is more than one vegetarian choice. However, even this benefit is tempered by the fact that so-called vegetarian dishes are ruined by having non-veggie Italian Parmesan added to them. The green salad was very... More

We were able to grab a table for the Sunday Carvery at this restaurant. We had the Trio - a sharing option for a minimum of two people, whereby a selection of three meats is brought to the table for you to carve yourself. Attractively presented on a wooden board, with roast potatoes and parsnips, seasonal veg, gravy and mash,... More

We stayed on a B & B deal at only £49 a night. The staff were very welcoming and chatty when we arrived. The room, Puffin, had a lovely big bed that was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size but a little dated in colour. The rest of the room was a little run down but we only... More

The chalkboards on the outside mentioning lobster caught my wife's eye, and I made enquiries. They suggested I book lobster meals, as they purchased supplies to order, so I booked the lobster platter (£25) for that (Monday) night. The Italian restaurant part is new since we last holidayed in the area, but we turned left into the redecorated lounge restaurant... More

We stayed on a B+B basis and booked a meal in the Italian restaurant. There is a sea food and an Italian section but the Italian area is more intimate and we preferred this. The sea food area is more open and is in the bar area, however it had a lovely wood burner. Don't get me wrong i would... More
