What a gem of a place seemingly in the middle of nowhere! Went for lunch, plenty of choice of the menu and food was very well presented, looking and tasting delicious. Staff extremely friendly and attentive.Definitely one to visit again, want to try their Sunday lunch!

We had a delicious out of season lunch in this comfortable modern building. Their menu of good classic dishes was supplemented by specials which were interesting - I could have chosen more than one. We had a delicious spiced vegetable soup and a sea bream with shrimps and micro fennel. The cook made the most of good ingredients without trying too hard to impress. I hear the cream teas are excellent and there is a lovely 3 mile circular walk that means you can visit the Waymarker at the beginning, the end or both! Their Christmas menu looks lovely too. Families are really well catered for with an outdoor play area.

On Friday the 8th of November my wife and I once again visited The Waymarker for their Goan Region Bonfire Night Curry evening.
There was a set three course menu for £20.
On arrival we were served an onion Bhaji, poppadoms and raita and chutney.
There was then a choice of three main courses. Anbottik: a Goan hot and sour fish and prawn curry. Chicken Xacuti: Chicken curry cooked in coconut, Goan spices and Goan Khatkhate, a vegetarian curry cooked with lentils, coconut and kokum. All the main choices were served with Basmati rice and Naan bread.
Then to finish there was Baath Cake. Goan cake made with coconut and rose water.
After the meal was finished we all went outside with a complimentary spiced cider or apple juice to watch a lovely firework display stood around a roaring bonfire.
The meal was wonderful. My wife and I couldn't decide which of the main courses to try. My wife ordered the fish, I ordered the chicken but in passing we happened to say to Rhihannon that we were going to share the curry choices and they all sounded so good that we would love to sample the veg as well. To our surprise she brought a small bowl of the vegetable curry as well.

Every mouthful was a delight. My wife and I have been fortunate with our careers to travel all over the world and we told them that the fish curry was the best we had tasted anywhere and we meant it.
The restaurant was full, there was a lovely atmosphere and all the staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming.
The fireworks were the icing on the cake. It was excellent value for money and it goes to prove that you can have a restaurant in a quieter area of the country and fill it with customers when you offer excellent quality food at good prices served by marvellous hosts.
The Waymarker and the team deserves to be successful as they work so very hard to provide our area with a super eating establishment. Well done. We will be back.....and back!
