A talented chef has introduced a very pleasing lunch menu. A wide choice of locally sourced ingredients , well cooked. Several fish dishes and homemade bread were delicious. Superb chips and good presentation. The service is gauche but would recommend. .

Went for mothers day carvery - absolutely superb - great food and staff plus the price was very reasonable. They also sold decent non alcoholic beer and the Prosecco was reasonably priced for a good hotel. Having stayed here before the rooms have been well appointed and had everything you could need.

Staff were helpful and pleasant in helping warm bottles for our baby. We visited on a weekday so it wasn't overly busy. We left a bag by accident but...

Called ahead as I'm a vegetarian and wanted to check there was an option for me. The chap who answered the phone asked the chef, and told me the options they had available, which I was more than happy with.

Touring the North-East coast we chose the Tufted Duck as an ideally located spot to break our journey overnight. Turned out to be a very lucky find. Very warm and friendly welcome, and the room was lovely - very new and clean, well prepared, and overlooking the sea. Having been travelling for a few days we were absolutely full with...
