A birthday meal I won't be forgetting. Beautiful thatched cottage. Great atmosphere. Creative chef. Loads of fantastic little touches, even down to my petit four plate having Happy birthday written in chocolate. Great service. Will definitely be returning.

We booked and had not been since February but were not disappointed. The starters of crab and crayfish brulee with poppy seed top and the walnut, goat's cheese and asparagus tart were delicious. Mains of fillet steak and calves liver were also great. Very well balanced meals. The ice cream and coffee with petit fours also very good. Staff were... More

The lunch menu is excellent and there were a couple of specials in addition. Our starters of chicken and pinenut terrine & a prawn and crayfish cocktail were both first class both flavour wise and presentationally.... More

Choices included starters of onion tart(fab), wild mushroom pate(fab) and main courses of mullet, sirloin,turbot(cooked to absolute perfection) with lovely... More

My mum and I had the Plaice and it was cooked to perfection and my Dad had the Beef. Every plate was empty so that is a good sign :) The deserts here... More
