Kevin and Jacki are excellent hosts who made us feel very relaxed. Good rooms and bar where we enjoyed pre dinner drinks and nibbles. Our dinner was excellent and highly creative, would definitely recommend! Many thanks, Charlie & Emma

We had the tasting menu and really enjoyed it. The food quality was high and creative, with good service. The attention to detail in the dishes is high and the balance of different foods was just right. It was a most enjoyable evening.

Very welcoming owners, the most exquisite food, lots of choice on the menu. A very beautiful beach style bedroom and the breakfast was divine. Thanks for a lovely time Kev & Jackie, hope to see you again soon.

Hi Kate, My opinion that this is a restaurant that is geared towards couples/fine dinning though I believe well behaved children are accepted and Sunday Lunch offered. I think a quick call to the Neptune would be advisable.
