“Good food, excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We have eaten here before, my partner booked another meal for a special occasion. It was a busy Saturday night but we were well looked after. My partner and her sister enjoyed their meals. I hoped to try one of the specials, but as a coeliac on a gluten free diet this could have been tricky. No problem, the waitress suggested which dishes could be adapted successfully, my choice of the sea bass fillets was very nice.

“Decent meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Sat outside looking at lovely views. Service was very friendly and attentive. Decent choice on menu although limited for kids and possibly pricier than other places near by, but food was freshly cooked and very tasty.

“Only went in for a quick bite but stopped for dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We stopped at weston for the weekend and took a walk along the prom for a snack/sandwich. After walking into a couple of bars cafes we spotted this little rstarount the day before and walked down to investigate further.
We walked into a great little place and was greeted by lovely ladies who showed us to a table. We saw a few roast dinners come out and stoped for dinner instead. The meal was super roast beef ( with no short measures). Crisp and fluffy roast pots and more veg than we could manage betwwen us . Colly/brocollie and cabbage all aldente and lots of flavour the carrots were just like they had just been picked. Beef was tender and tasty . With 2 meals and two latttes bill was £22 ish .
Yes you could get it slightly cheaper i dont deny this but the really nice attmosphere and staff .someone on here stated 60/70 music but we had no issues with what sound like modern good quality music ( eg glastonbury style) in the background. We didnt have any alcahol or desert ( didnt need it stuffed) but the wine list looked extensive.

“Caters for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

I am not sure why this place is not in the top 10! We ate here 3 nights out of the 9 we stayed in Weston and each time it was lovely. Great staff, good food and nice wine, they even catered for one fussy eater in the group which was a result for us. I would recommend a visit.
