Our group of four were doing a weekend break on the mainland for a change and wanted to be certain of a good meal to start things off. The chef owner, James, was very happy to show off his kitchen and was most proud of his 25 year experience at producing meals to order. Two attentive waiters ensured we wanted for nothing. The smoked platter starter of three meats had an unusual herb flavour and the house special beef was cooked perfectly, it's rich dark sauce was superb. Not wanting to overdo the meal, we opted to skip dessert and enjoy the coffee, which came with a shortbread and a cube of fudge, great finish. A great blind booking, with charming staff and excellent food. This was the best of the two restaurants we were able to try. With wine and service, £160.
