“New owners and what a difference”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

Dropped in for a quick lunch after a game of golf. Have visited several times in the past but what a transformation. It has all been redecorated and it is lovely. Very welcoming and lovely and cosy. Food was excellent and served quickly with lovely friendly service. Will certainly be back and trying to plan an overnight stay.

“Relaxed dining with stunning view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

We arrived at approx 5.30pm on a Saturday evening(we hadn't booked and dinner service begins at 5.30pm) We were greeted with a friendly handshake by the lovely owners who made us feel very at home and were interested about where we lived and what had brought us to their establishment. An icing on the cake for me personally as a massive animal lover is that they had two gorgeous dalmatians, whose names escape me, which was a lovely touch but I suppose if you don't like dogs the owners would have whisked them away to their beds out of sight. The decor was quite chic and I loved the comfy red seats which were perfect for sitting with a morning espresso and a newspaper. The dining chairs were not so inviting as they were fold up and lacked the same appeal as the rest of the deco(just my opinion).
We asked to split the starter of vegetable tempura and when it came we actually thought they had made a mistake and given us a portion each, however when we checked the bill this showed us that we had only paid for one starter. As vegetarians we were happy to see an unusual vegetarian dish, a bean bake smothered in a rich tomato sauce with veg and potatoes. The portion was ample and the bean bake was full of flavour so top marks. For dessert my partner had apple crumble with ice cream and I chose the Affogato, which I loved. All in all I would recommend this place and I really felt that the owners deserve to do well as it is clear that they really care.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Arrived 12 March 2014 to a lovely welcome from owners Nick & Ian. Hotel on beach with gorgeous views. Food lovely and reasonably priced. Breakfast really good and you should have the red pepper and chilli jam (which is home made ) which is fantastic. Owners have been here for just over 7 months and are building the reputation of the hotel & restaurant. Have stayed in so called "better" hotels but prefer this one. The dalmatian dogs are so beautiful as well!

“Cracking Place with Spectacular Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We had a meal here on Saturday night, the new owners have the place looking brilliant. The décor is beautiful.

Our meal was delicious and the service was amazing. Very fast. The owners were very polite and efficient. We will definitely be back again soon.

Would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great meal with some cracking scenic views.
