Lighthouse made our wedding an evening to remember

Having eaten here several times and never been disappointed, we decided to have our wedding breakfast here on 27th June. The run up was smooth and nothing was too much trouble (thank you Poppy). Jon and his team provided a 7 course taster menu for 53 people. The food was immaculately presented... read more

I had heard many good reports of The Lighthouse, they are fully justified! In a party of six friends we went for Dinner on a Saturday evening, for a Tasting Menu of some 8 courses. In our party was a vegetarian, so often they are fobbed off with poor alternatives. Here the V menu is well planned with each course... More

We would encourage fans of good food to try this restaurant. Heather and I really enjoyed the tasting menu last night. Thought it was very cooked, with interesting imaginative modern flavours and combinations and well presented by friendly staff. Well done to all of you. We will definitely look to support this restauarant and would encourage you to try them.... More

We took advantage of the special offer on the tasting menu a couple of weeks ago. I was looking forward to it but slightly reticent as my wife can be a fussy eater sometimes and the predetermined menu choices might have been a problem. I should not have worried. The food was, of course, superb from start to finish, every... More

Came here with my wife for our 3rd wedding anniversary. Had the taster menu; the food, ambience, staff, drinks all excellent. Nothing better in the area. Just brilliant.

The Lighthouse Restaurant sits, almost hidden behind the village pub in Boylestone, just a mile or two off the A515 between Ashbourne and Sudbury, and only a few miles off the A50, so reasonably easily accessible to passers by, and very well worth the detour Designed in a very simple but extremely attractive style everything about the Lighthouse is first...

Our friends live in the village and had invited us to join them for the tasting menu. We have dined in Michelin star restaurants, the last we visiting was Tom Kerridge's Hand and Flowers in Marlow, this blew it away! We had the tasting menu and every course was exquisite. The nettle veloute was brilliant, i didn't realise nettles tasted... More

We visited the Lighthouse restaurant on the spur of the moment booking. What a delight! Everything was top notch - the food, the presentation, the staff, the service, the surroundings and the ambience. We had no idea such a place existed and we hope they continue to do well. My husband and I are both good cooks so it was... More
