Quite possibly one of the best meals out that I have eaten this year. Lovely, friendly and knowledgeable staff - the waiter made a Lovely off menu martini for me. The food was fresh, local and very tasty. Well presented and sensible portion sizes. Cosy atmosphere which seemed to reflect the coastal area. I will be coming back and big... More

We were taken to this restaurant for a birthday treat at the end of February, and what a treat it was! From the moment we walked in from the pouring rain we were greeted by friendly staff and made to feel very welcome. The evening began with Janice advising us of the different gins on the cocktail menu. We decide... More

The staff are an absolute credit to this establishment. If you'd like a relaxed evening with great quality food I'd totally recommend it. Brilliant selection of cocktails and wines on arrival. When we arrived (early) we were placed on a table towards the back of the restaurant and advised as soon as our table was vacant we would be able... More

What a great restaurant! We've been before - about 20 years ago, and it's still in the family. Friendly, thoughtful and relaxing, with a great fish menu and a good chef who knows how to cook fish. It was lovely to chat with the new owners about their plans and aspirations. Good spot too on the harbour, nice for a... More

I was lucky enough to work a few shifts at Mallams while I waited to start full time work in London. Lauren, CJ, Jemma, Dean, Tony and Trevor are some of the loveliest people I've worked with and made me feel so welcome, being all the way from New Zealand I was worried at how I would fit in. I...

Some of the meals were very good however a few were so disappointing they warrant this review. One portion of fish tasted old and was almost inedible but hunger won over taste.

Two lovely people who personally run this nice harbourside restaurant. Went there twice within a short time and never got disappointed. Top cocktails, good wine selection, menu not too large but still good choice, professional attitude. A perfect place for people who wish cuisine of a high standard, yet enjoy a personal and relaxed atmosphere

Very cosy place on the water front, the inside design feels very warm and welcoming and one of the preferred sceneries I like to be in a restaurant, the managers are exceptional nice and accommodating and very nice and easy to spark a conversation with, the mains were nice but possibly the fillet of hake with onion Bhaji was missing...

I must admit, not knowing this place existed I feel shameful having lived here for three years and never found this place. My husband and I were blown away at the quality of the staff, food, drinks and well everything was top notch, having eaten in places like 'the ivy' 'harvey nichols' and other michelin star or aa Rosetta star...

I came away feeling disappointed after a meal to celebrate my birthday. The food although good was overpriced I felt , as the portion sizes were so small. The bill was large , but we were still hungry so went home and had cheese and biscuits.

Thank Denise H

Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since 1990. The restaurant is in an beautiful position with views of the bustling harbour.The Tudor beams and stone walls of the listed building have a traditional feel but are complemented by contemporary decor. The food is very definitely in the 21st century, an eclectic mix of ideas from British cuisine, with a touch of French and some Asian influence as well, always using the freshest, local produce. Seafood is much in evidence, as you would expect, but meat, game and poultry feature too.All this mixed with exciting wines and cocktails and friendly and attentive service and a really personal touch from the hands on owners make this a venue to remember. We are always happy to discuss your requirements for special celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and we will be pleased to design a special menu just for you.
