Reviewed August 10, 2009

A trip to the Cary Arms is out of this world on one of those rare English summer days when the weather really does feel like you're on the English Riviera the staff were worked off of their feet we saw hundreds of people arriving on foot, by road and on such a beautiful day even by boat.. Nothing seems too much trouble here even when the terrace is really busy in summer the staff go out oif their way to get you seated for one of those fantastic lunches you dont forget too quickly, just when you thought it couldnt get better came the new barbecue food out on the terrace absolutely delicious. Today from the menu though it was beautiful smoked salmon followed by Cod Loin cooked to perfection and some fish and chips to put the best to shame! once again the wife asked me why my cooking wasn't this good so I excused myself by saying its all down to the ingredients... which is of course true as the Cary definitely gets the best and serves them at a fair price too! no skimping on portions either. If its dessert your after try them all we have! We are here that often we are thinking of moving into one of the rooms... well at least taking a break in Autumn!
