Amazing Restaurant Excellent Food & Ambiance. The views from the Patio are outstanding on a summers day one would feel as if you were abroad. This is a well run friendly establishment catering for everyone also accommodating well behaved dogs,

Had a wonderful meal, moules, duo of lamb, holumi and creme caramel. All food was excellent albeit holumi was slightly dry but didn't detract from the overall quality. 2 gin and tonics enjoying the view on our 20th anniversary thus couldn't be better! Staff excellent and attentive.

The burger was pre cooked and warmed up, the onion rings were soggy and dripping in oil. We asked them to be replaced and informed that this is how they are served and true to their word our replacement ones were exactly the same. The prawn cocktail was all mixed leaves and very little prawns. A very disappointing meal their... More

Thank you for your review. Our burgers are sourced locally from either Devon or Cornwall and are never 'warmed-up', our burgers are always cooked fresh, no exception. Sorry you felt they were warmed up and sorry about your onion rings; I agree the chef should have let them drain before they were served to you. We did take some money... More

There was a mess up with our drinks order which meant we didn't get what we initially ordered but despite this, I enjoyed our evening. The food was fantastic and the waiters were very professional and efficient.

The restaurant was very busy for a Friday lunchtime at an out of season seaside resort, the food took over an hour to arrive and was very pretty to look at. The fries had to be changed for freshly cooked ones, the onion rings had been cooked more than once as they were overcooked and quite bitter to taste, the... More

Firstly, thank you for your feedback. You're right it was a particularly busy Friday lunch service, so food did take a little while longer to arrive than usual. As you say; we did replace your fries for fresh ones quickly, but they should have been right the first time so I apologise for that. Unfortunately there was a hair in... More
