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...

We celebrated New Years Eve here there was a wonderful tasting menu (see attached). My daughter is 13 and enjoyed every single course they were all stunning. The service was excellent and we were able to pace our courses so could complete and enjoy them all. I have a shellfish allergy and the chefs adapted the courses perfectly. The live... More

We visited the Lighthouse just before Xmas and had their tasting menu. Each course was beautifully presented and was delicious. The meal did take about 2 hours which was just right to fully enjoy the varied courses. My daughter is vegetarian and the chef produced a vegetarian version of the tasting menu for her - much appreciated. I thought the... More

Really nice surprise. A hidden gem tucked away in the hills. Great service and food. A little cold and the decor didn't really match the quality of the food . Worth a visit but wrap up if its a winter visit.
