So nice to have a local restaurant with this type of quality. The taster menu is great although I could not eat some of the last dishes as was too full... so go there hungry ! I would prefer smaller lighter deserts when you are eating so many courses. Some of the wine prices are a little pricey so the... More

My partner and I went there for my birthday and both had the Chef's Tasting Menu. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the staff very nice. It took about 3 hours to eat all the various dishes but the atmosphere was so nice that time just flew by very quickly. The menu was made of about 9 or 10 different... More

Visited for the first time last Friday evening. I like the general atmosphere and ambiance. The staff are all young, informed, pleasant, knowledgeable and professional. The food was beautifully cooked and presented - just to my taste. Very impressed. Thank you.

We ate here on a Friday evening. The atmosphere was very good, the food, in general, very good and the pricing fair with a good wine list at reasonable price. We had the tasting menu. The first three courses were excellent, the beef ok, the desserts very good. I would certainly go back, perhaps not every week but certainly a... More

Another amazing meal at the lighthouse! Not only is the food amazing, the staff are too! We have been several times now, and it's always a pleasure. Taster menu is full of flavour and different delights!! What are you waiting for?

Two of us had lunch here today and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Plenty of room between tables, nice relaxed atmosphere and comfortably warm - and you don't feel rushed in any way. You can see the chefs creating the dishes very professionally, in a spotless environment, with dedication and precision. The service was good - friendy and attentive, yet discreet... More

My fiancée surprised me for my birthday by booking a table for 4 on sat 17th. We arrived in the car park and walked around the back of the rose and crown to find the very cosy looking 'Lighthouse Restaurant' We were very warmly welcomed inside and sat down to our table. The menu is superb and has something for... More

Visited the Lighthouse with my girlfriend Thursday and was totally blown away by the quality of the food. We both ordered the taster menu and were completely overwhelmed by the experience. Everything was cooked to perfection, beautifully presented and the combinations of complementary flavors made each dish a delight to work our way through. Each dish was was exceptional, my... More

We visited the Lighthouse twice over the Christmas 2014 / New Year period. We cannot praise this restaurant highly enough and echo the excellent reviews posted to date. Sublime food presented by elegant and attentive front of house awaits you when you visit this restaurant. The young team, led by Chef Jon is energetic, focussed and professional, resulting in the...
