This restaurant is fairly small and intimate which adds to the character and charm.
The menu is limited but adequate with the quality of the food excellent.
The website offered a choice of fixed price and a la carte menus, however, only a la carte was on offer when we arrived. This meant an extra £15 per head.
Service was friendly and helpful.
Will return but only if both menus are on offer.

This restaurant is faultless. Loved the whole experience. The decor is restful and the staff are attentive without being over zealous. The menu choice is superb, the set menu before 8pm great value for money, 3 courses £15.95. I have a gluten intolerance and was pleasantly surprised at the options available. Infact, was spoilt for choice. The waiter's knowledge regarding the intolerance was superb. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and would definately go back if in the area.

This restaurant is a pure delight. Its menus, varying from full à la carte to light meals, attract potential customers from the window. Inside, the atmosphere is restful with a calm, confident waiter to take orders and serve meals.
The meals are delicious and varied, with unusual mixtures showing a level of sophistication and great culinary skill. Even the wine list included surprises.
Everything, even down to the immaculately clean toilets, reached via a central spiral staircase, shows complete class.

Great, cosy restaurant. Food was delicious and reasonable. We had all 3 courses and we felt well fed! Smart dress, well worth the visit.

The approach to the restaurant is just down from the market place ,along a cobbled walkway. Inside it is set out with tables for two and four but a party for six was quickly accomadated.
We were shown to our table,and the drinks order taken, There is an a'la carte menu and a table de hote,both of which had a very wide choice.
For the starter we had the pat'e and the stuffed pepper , both were well presented
And very FRESH,not the usual soggy limp salad that some 5star establishment try to pass off.
Which is why my heading is "it deserves 5stars" .the mains arrived after a comfortable break from the starters, salmon and goats cheese tart ,both seved with a selection of excellent vegetables,
Again very fresh and well cooked not to al dente just nice,the portion sizes are just right,which left room for a pudding very nice ,but now we are to full ,but it was a good pudding.on refelctiion,a great find,serving excellent food at a reasonable price,the drinks prices were ok to

WOULD WE RETURN AGAIN .YES

If you have never been to the Lamplight it's been waiting for you since 1460 ish .so why aren't you there now, you will not regret it .
