Served from 6-6.45pm served in Brasserie. Wide range of dishes - excellent quality and value for money. Staff - attentive and efficient - as always. £12.95 until August 31st every day. This option is offered at lunchtime too. A huge appetite - cod and chips!

Had a great seafood platter meal. With a complimentary glass of wine each, I can't think of a better lunch on a sunny day. There was too much in the end, with a lobster, mussels, oysters, prawns, shrimps, smoke salmon etc. Plus a dish of new potatoes in warm butter. Perfect! We sat out by the pool and enjoyed every...
