I went here last night after booking back in February purely based on the pictures i had seen. I went with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was such a fantastic experience I cannot praise the place enough. The staff were so attentive, explaining each dish and ensuring our wine... read more

We dined on a Saturday night and therefore only the tasting menu was available. It took three hours to get through the food. That was not a good thing. The serving staff were fine it was the kitchen that could not cope. Given that the chairs are seriously uncomfortable it wasn't the best experience. The food had mixed reviews -... More

very nice food and excellent service, but my wife and I both have mobility problems, so getting up the steep gunnel, stone entrance steps and uneven floors was an issue. It's an old building, so I'm not saying anything should change, just a warning that if you have reduced mobility you may want to look elsewhere ...

Enjoyed the taster menu on Saturday evening. Excellent food and every course was a delight. Perfect proportions. Good wine and coffee. A little tricky for a wheelchair user to negotiate but staff are quietly helpful. An expensive treat for special occasions and celebrations.

I have been dining at the Lighthouse for a few years and always found the food and atmosphere delightful so when a big birthday was due it was the obvious choice for my big celebration. Jon and Poppy couldn't have been more helpful in the planning stages, offering a 7 course tasting menu for 40 guests with vegetarian and non-fish... More

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, with the same attention being applied to every... 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
