The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who lives locally so we decided to try it for a midweek lunch on a recent visit to this lovely area. The setting is quite delightful with distant views out to the estuary. The ambience is nicely relaxed (particularly bearing in mind the restaurant is situated in a golf course club... More

This is situated in such lovely surroundings and the food is splendid - we just found the service a bit on the slow side

3rd time I have been to the spa. I enjoy the facilities and treatments but the restaurant is a big disappointment. I found a hair in my starter and a member of the table staff had the cheek to tell me it was part of the vegetable. the main was bland. quite frankly I have had better food in pub... More

Returned to meet friends today, thought it can't be as bad as it previously was, oh how I was wrong, they've managed to surpass themselves and take it to a whole new level. An afternoon spoiled by rude staff who think that this place is something special, that you're doing them a favour by being there and why on earth... More

Three friends and myself visited this restaurant yesterday evening. The service was excellent. The food was too! We all made different choices and could not find fault with any of our three courses. Despite the restaurant being very busy the food arrived in a timely fashion. The wine was good too!!!

A nice location with scenic views during the day and evening. A lovely atmosphere and great for occasions or if you just fancy a meal. Not too expensive with lots of good food choices.

Booked in for Sunday Lunch with a party of friends. The views are, it has to be said, outstanding. The staff were also friendly and nothing was too much trouble. However..the food, well thats another thing altogether. Two meals from a table of seven were returned, one being overcooked, and another having an inedible addition tucked away in the sauce.... More
