The Service and Food were very good. It was a pity when they offered us a taster before, we both do not like goats cheese.

I have been lucky enough to visit this amazing family run Michelin restaurant twice in a few months and it is absolutely astounding.

A modest trek from Hastings on a very wet day. 3 generations the day before our next grandchild was due. Tuesday lunchtime. Impeccable. Xarelo from Penendes. A mixture of inexpensive set menu and a la carte .... All in a genuinely relaxed environment. Will we go again , without doubt .
