We enjoyed a lovely high tea at the Tufted Duck. The food was excellent and the portions were very good. We were well catered for and we will certainly be back. Staff were helpful and pleasant in helping warm bottles for our baby. We visited on a weekday so it wasn't overly busy. We left a bag by accident but...

When we arrived, the waiter asked who the vegetarian was and said the chef was also happy to whip me...

Very warm and friendly welcome, and the room was lovely - very new and clean, well prepared, and overlooking the sea. Having been travelling for a few days we were absolutely full with...

Attended New years day dinner here. Carvery dinners do work well if managed properly, however it didn't work very well for our party on this occasion. In order for a carvery to run smoothly, it is imperative that order is kept and levels of vegetables, potatoes, gravy etc etc are monitored closely to prevent diners experiencing an empty buffet when...

I visited The Tufted Duck Hotel on Christmas Day for lunch with my family. As always the food and staff were first class. I enjoyed that there was no rush of turning tables and we had a relaxed lunch at our own pace. We will be back next year.
