Evening meals were very good although really long waiting time (we were warned by a notice how long!). Really busy with locals which is good but reservations are necessary. Staff were pleasant and Kathy did everything at top speed to keep the waiting time down!
Breakfast however was not such a good experience. Usual good selection of items, most mornings but when Sam was in charge oh dear!! We arrived around 8.30am waited to be taken to table was told he would come back for the hot order but never returned! 25 mins later I went in search of someone! Finally found Hannah who came to table took our order but did not apologise for the wait shrug of the shoulders! Finally got our meal which was served with a glare. Did not clear dirty cereal bowls or glasses so we ate surrounded by dirty pots and dishes! Which on a small table for two was not easy.

Went with my 2 young children, waiter was very friendly & helpful & provided them with some crayons & activity book. Food was great & my son especially liked the chocolate challenge pudding! Always a great atmosphere & staff very friendly. Lots of choice on menu for both adults & children.

A short wait to be seated at a lovely window seat with views over the hills. The service was excellent and the menu choice was good, the steak was perfect with accompanying chips, mushrooms etc. There were some tempting offers to entice us back, will try and treat the family before our holiday ends

Always decent enough but nothing special, slightly over price but the buffet breakfast is a winner & great value.

Went here on a Monday and, apart from a Mothers Eat Free evening visit to another TableTable on a Sunday had not had an evening meal in one before. Read the previous reviews but must say the service was good for us. The actual food was quite nice...i had peppered cod and my wife lamb but, apart from the lamb, the portions were far too small. To elaborate, my wife's so called roasted potatoes were more like pale baked potatoes and the vegetables (as advertised plural) were cabbage and leek mashed in together and not that hot. Portions were small! My potatoes were again a small portion and my cod was half a cod!! I was advised that "cod is expensive" and these were the portions they were given so presumably it is the same for all TableTables? So, we will probably go for the Sunday offer but never again for an evening meal.
