Usually get the great fish and chips from here but has been a few years since we actually ate here. Did so last week. We sat in the small dining room where I still think the layout needs improvement; very few tables but yet they still angle towards one another so you do have people talking directly towards you.

Don't be put off by the name; a "small or inexpensive restaurant or coffee bar, serving light meals and refreshments" this is not. Our Seafood Tasting Menu was a delight running through - grilled sardine sitting on an apple slaw and thin beetroot slices garnished with a horsradish cream -cured salmon with a citrus fruit & herb salad - a...

Booked this 5 course tasting menu using an Amazon Local voucher. We live quite a distance away but the drive to get here along a scenic coastal road and past Dunster Castle more than made up for it. On arrival we were seated in front of a huge window in the small and intimate dining room affording a view overlooking... More

This was a Travelzoo deal comprising a seafood tasting menu and stay for the night. We received a very warm and friendly welcome from Andrew and Sarah and can only describe our stay as superb. Each of the courses was met with delight and the recommended accompanying wines (which came at a supplement) were a perfect choice by our amiable... More

My wife saw the Travelzoo deal and booked the seafood tasting menu, which proved to be extremely good value. Now I'm not really a fish fan but this was simply amazing cooking and presentation. The flavours, ingredients and balance of the food was wonderful. You'd have to travel a long way to find food as good as this. The service... More

Spotted a Travelzoo deal for the 5 course tasting menu, so booked to visit during our holiday in the area. Really pleased we did! Brilliant deal! We booked for lunchtime so able to take in the view. Had a lovely table in the bay window. The restaurant was fairly quiet - surprising considering the quality of the food and service.... More

Best seafood taster menu, ever. Breakfast also excellent. Loved the sardine starter, followed end by smoked salmon with unusual dressing. Next course was an amazing crab & lobster sausage. I know sounds strange but oh so tasty. Followed by place, samphire capers & new potatoes. Dessert tasty berry baravoir. Nothing to dislike at all. Everything perfect. Service excellent.

We thought we'd give this place a try, we go to Porlock regularly but never really noticed it before. Firstly, it's not a cafe, despite being called 'The Cafe'. This could catch you out, especially if you don't bother to read the menu outside. As you make your way in there's a room with tables on the left, but no... More

On holiday in the area this year, we ate at quite a new very nice place in Allerford called Cross Lane House and enjoyed good quality food there, but we also ate in Porlock Weir twice since it was only a short walk to there. On both occasions we ate out of the Cross; I say 'out of' since although... More
