Thought we would eat in as we were staying in the hotel. We had our dog with us and they dog sat so we could enjoy our meal without worrying about him. Big bonus points :) the food was of a high standard but maybe a big to fancy for our pallet. If you are looking for something special for... More

Being able to dine with your dog is a big plus, I know it's unfamiliar territory for them, being all together feels much more relaxing. Should you join us again, we can always create a simpler menu enabling you to fully enjoy your dining experience, just let our reservation team know upon re-booking. We also have an Anytime Anywhere menu... More

The restaurant has a great outlook out over the beach. The food was very good, despite there being few items on the menu. Unfortunately this is an 'eco' hotel, so the wines are not allowed any airmiles, so the choice is limited.

We do only source our wines from as far as Europe, but feel we have a large selection that has been carefully chosen, many of these can also be ordered by the glass. We prefer to have a slightly smaller menu to ensure we deliver beautifully presented, delicious food, I am really pleased to read you enjoyed your evening with... More

We are really proud of our vegetarian options on both our lunch & dinner menu, with us being a sustainable hotel, it fits very well with our ethos. Recently quite a few meat eating guests have been converted to the veggie options after seeing our menu, I particularly enjoy the cheese soufflé. Thank you for sharing you Scarlet experience, we...

Staying at the sister hotel ,this was a must for our last night. A rather cavernous dining room but it was certainly spacious. Staff were very friendly and service was good. Food excellent and the views were stunning.

We had a lovely meal with fantastic views, recommend the wine flight with bubbles, all wraps up very early and lacks a little bit of atmosphere

Rachael F, Manager at The Scarlet Restaurant, responded to this review

Thank you for your review The wine flight is a wonderful way to broaden your taste buds and learn a little about what you like or indeed don't like. As the majority of our guests are residents, they do prefer to retreat to their rooms after dinner, this however should not put you off enjoying a coffee with petit fours... More

We ate here for breakfast and dinner twice - we usually eat out so that should give you an idea of how much we liked it!
