I found this pub for a lunch out with friends using Trip Adviser recommendations and was not disappointed! We were met with a very warm welcome and service was great throughout.

My wife & I went here for our wedding anniversary and what a meal! Despite the pub being full to bursting, the service was superb and so was the food. Great place, great food, great staff - thanks Candlelight, you are up there with the best.

Fabulous pub/restaurant. Very warm and welcoming with gorgeous food. Slightly expensive for an everyday evening meal, but certainly worth it.

The Candlelight is a great venue. It still functions as a pub that the locals can enjoy a drink in and still manages to serve delicious food. well worth a visit.

Booked a table for 2 at this pub/restaurant after checking reviews on various establishments in the region of our holiday home. A warm, friendly welcome from the landlord as we entered. Very tastefully decorated interior in keeping with the area and building. As expected from the name, each table was candlelit, but good additional lighting too. We visited on a... More
