“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Warm and welcoming place with a good (and well deserved) reputation. Both the lamb and hake main courses were exactly on the money, cooked to perfection. The deserts were less exacting with the rhubard crumble a little bland and cold. Overall very good.

“Great menu!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This was a last minute booking as we had already booked somewhere else. Saw the menu and had to try! So pleased we did, great food beautifully cooked and served with care. Well worth a visit and lovely to see a family business delivering an amazing service. We will definitely be back.

“Fresh Modern Food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Great modern food, baked cheesecake was particularly good! My Partner had fish as a main and thought it was fantastic. We would go back when we are next in Swanage.

“Excellent!!!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here on Saturday night, I called to see if they could fit in a party of 10, which they could not. However Gary called back and offered us the private room downstaires for an early dinner before they got too busy, Gary and his staff were very accommodating to our needs. Food, service and surrondings were fantastic, will definitely visit again next year.

“Never judge a book by it's cover”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We were staying in Swanage on Valentines night and had booked a meal at the Corner Restaurant. The outside looked a bit nondescript. However inside it was a completely different story. It was a delight to enter, soak up the atmosphere, and to be greeted so warmly by the owner. The meal was a perfect foil for the wine (or should that be the other way round?) I would go back to Swanage just for the tiger prawn and garlic butter starter alone.
