“Very nice, would recommend a meal out here!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Liked the look of this place and lovely location right by the harbour. We didn't book and pleased to get a table overlooking the harbour for Sunday lunch. Husband had delicious red pepper and tomato soup with crusty bread, very thick and tasty soup. I didn't have a starter and glad I didn't because the roast beef main was a huge portion! We both chose roast beef. Massive piece of beef and good selection of vegtables.The waitress warned us that the homemade horseraddish sauce was on the hot side but it was delicious and not too hot for us. Too full for pudding. Prices reasonable, £9.95 for roast beef and well worth it. Drinks reasonable too. Only negative point was waiter didn't tell kitchen our starter had been cleared so had a delay on getting our main, he was very apologetic and it didn't matter because the view was so nice and we were in no hurry! :)

“Wonderful seafood”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Set right in the hub of Doc Martin's Port Wenn (actually Port Isaac), I had lobster and it was lovely. The steaks eaten by our party were the best they had tasted, although a bit on the pricey side, it was a lovely experience. Right on the harbourside, under a heat light, with the sound of the waves.......heaven! And you can book a table for a special date, it was our 25th anniversary and we got one of the 2 outside tables.
