It is however safe and enclosed and kids can play whilst adults can enjoy the views and a... read more

An excellent lunch today. The variety of food is awesome, ranging from the traditional to the exciting specials, which today was a selection of fish cooked in different ways. An extremely friendly service and absolutely delicious food.

The starters were wonderful, garlic mushrooms and garlic bread. I ordered the lamb for my main however when it arrived it was barely warm and had very little taste aside from the red wine sauce. I didn't eat any of my main and yet when the waitress came to clear the table she didn't comment or ask if my meal... More

I would normally want to follow up a review like this by speaking to the waitress concerned, but I'm a little confused as the review you've written states that our restaurant was reviewed on June 24th, yet you visited in December 2014, am I reading this correctly? I would appreciate you letting me know as we try to encourage waitresses... More

We called in on speck - without a reservation - and were pleasantly surprised with the welcome. Although they had two large parties booked in, they accommodated us with a romantic table for two near the windows looking out on to the moors. I had mushrooms in garlic cream sauce for starter. We both had the traditional homemade steak and... More
