Fab food

We dined at The Lighthouse with two of our friends, we went for a special offer - the tasting menu for £35 and it was all wonderful. Started with a little soup taster with roasted pumpkin seeds on top, then a fish scotch egg with chorizo, then scallops with quail, then beef with garlic, then a... read more

In the middle of nowhere this is a real gem. Modern, refreshing environment, fantastic staff and amazing food. Loved it, had tasting menu, arrived at 730pm left at 11.30pm, leave enough time to enjoy. Really good value, and font hike the prices on beer and wine which was great.

We discovered this place a few years ago now and were delighted to find such a restaurant so close to where we live. Alas this area is rather short of such places. We do not visit too often as it is rather expensive but the quality of both the service and the food is top notch (or top nosh even).... More

Such a superb find. Cannot fault anything here, I can't wait to go back. The longhorn beef is quite simply stunning, and that's coming from a Dexter farmer!!

Absolutely fantastic food, we went for the tasting menu and it was delicious. The service was excellent, well trained staff that were friendly and professional. We can't rate this place highly enough, we are not easily pleased and we would thoroughly recommend The Lighthouse if you are a couple or a group of friends looking for a lovely evening out.

On returning to the Lighthouse for our second visit this Thursday the experience was every bit as good (If not more so!) than the first. We opted for the Taster Menu this time, which was hugely enjoyed by both my husband and myself. The combination of flavours tasted in the 8 courses together with the enthusiasm for the food by...

Four of us went on our first visit to The Lighthouse last Saturday. What a fabulous experience it turned out to be!! After much deliberation we all decided to have the chef's taster menu, what an inspired choice. Superb quality of food and presentation. Personal highlight's for me were the Black Miso cod and the Derbyshire beef. The attention to... More

We had tried to book for a Thursday in March but The Lighthouse was booked solid. I can see why. We were lucky to grab a last minute cancellation and am I glad we did. We particularly wanted to try the taster menu and wow the food was excellent, the service staff impeccable. For such an entirely young staff everything... More
