We ate both dinner and breakfast at the Benbow Inn Restaurant when we stayed at the Inn. Both meals were excellent! The seafood was fresh, as were the vegetables, AND dessert was a rare treat!

Enjoyed a lovely dinner on the terrace listening to live music. A very good menu and a lovely waiter named Jaid who was most helpful and charming. The Chef came around the tables during the evening,which was a nice touch.
