The restaurant was very busy on the night we attended and there was a good atmosphere in the bar and restaurant area. The staff were very friendly and had time to chat briefly. We had cocktails to start our evening with which... More

Access is up some steps at both entrances that I saw. There may be other ones but I did n't see them. The dining area was pleasant and clean without being flashy. We were shown to one of the booths. The seats were a little high leaving both my wife's and her sisters' feet dangling in mid air. (They are... More

I have eaten here every New Years Day for the last 4 or 5 years (it's become a tradition) and it is always a highlight of the festive period. The slow cooked pork belly is divine!

Had a great dinner here again trying different items from the menu. Staff particularly helpful with wine selection and menu choices. I recommend the sharing platters of smoked fish and meats, both of which are excellent. The pulled lamb was a new dish for me and a new lamb flavour that I look forward to having again. If you like... More

Hi Mark, thank you for taking the time to review the Brasserie. I was pleased to hear that you indulged in plenty of the fish on the menu and that you enjoyed the platters ( which are one of my favourites ;-), along with the naughty desserts!!!) We look forward to seeing you again soon Kind regards Peter More

Our new Bar and Brasserie has been inspired by a modern desire to return to simple, 'back to basics' food, offering freshly prepared dishes, contemporary, informal surroundings and impeccable service. We hope the whole family will enjoy dining with us. From fresh fish bought from Dean's Shed, situated on the beach opposite the White Lion, to smoked kippers sourced from Pinney's of Orford, every ingredient used in the exciting dishes which feature on the new menu, has been 'hand picked' to guarantee an abundance of flavours - Bon Appétit.
