Staying in Burnham for the weekend so came here to celebrate my Son's 21st.

We were staying at Burnham on Sea holiday village so booked a table here to celebrate my Son's 21st birthday. Had a table for 9 people, restaurant was quite full but service good. Food was lovely and reasonably priced. Would definitely come here again if in the area.

This place knows how to cook great food, go here if you really want a treat of great food and a great atmosphere. You must try the rump of lamb if you aren't vegetarian, it was truly mouth watering

This restaurant serves well cooked and presented Italian food. The mains were very filling, so we chose not to have dessert. The restaurant was very busy but the service was prompt and efficient. Given the décor and its popularity, it is a little noisy, so it is probably not ideal for an intimate meal for a couple, but it was... More

Visited here as a party of six adults for an evening meal. We phoned up to book a few days prior and were told we couldn't be seated until 8:15pm. This was a little later than we wanted but we assumed they were just that busy. On our arrival there were many tables free, none of which filled up during... More

Crab cakes???where's the crab??? Tasted of nothing. Main course, what can I say, the sort of dish I cook on a Monday. Very over priced and felt like a number not a guest!! Never again. That's £50 wasted. Thanks.
