Went for Sunday lunch with my husband and 96yr old mum and we really couldn’t have found anywhere better. We were warmly welcomed, the staff were friendly and efficient and the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere. We all had the Sunday roast and dessert. Both...were beautifully cooked and the vegetables were served separately which was nice. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant and we will certainly return if in the area.More

Don’t waste ur time going anywhere else, the food/service here is amazing & very reasonably priced. Can’t fault it in anyway, definitely worth a visit & we will most certainly be calling again next time we’re around.

I was looking for somewhere in Minehead that could offer some gluten free menu choices and this little restaurant was an absolute winner. A whole menu to choose from and separate fryers to keep free of cross contamination. We turned up without booking and initially...they looked full up by they managed to fit us in. Food was very tasty and desserts..... so much gluten free choice is was like coeliac heaven! So pleased the menu outside highlighted the gf choices - otherwise we would have walked straight past. Friendly staff and totally accommodated our party of 4 - 2 of whom were needing dinner and 2 of whom were only after a snack! Thank you!More

Excellent choices on the menu, something for everyone. Service was very efficient and friendly. Food was delicious and hot! My husband raved about the steak and kidney pie 🥧. Definitely recommend a visit for decent homecooked food.

A fascinating historic old building. We had two Sunday lunches and a lasagne, followed by desserts. Utter perfection! My turkey was wonderful. Great food and really nice staff.

Family group of 7 with one in a wheelchair. Ramps provided so that we could get in. We had the Sunday roast and desserts. It was all lovely. Plenty of choice on the menu and good value. Staff were lovely.

Went last night whilst taking a short break in the area, service was excellent, my husband had the chicken breast in mushroom sauce served with crispy homemade chips, and was very happy, and I had the lamb shank with mash and veg, absolutely delicious. Large...selection of desserts and they were amazing. Good portion size and all very reasonably priced. We had our dog with us ( we had prebooked as only 1 dog allowed per sitting), and it’s rare to find somewhere where the food is excellent that is also dog friendly. Well done for meeting our needs so perfectly. Highly recommend.More

Booked in advance for the evening table as this is a busy place all day it would appear. Had a lovely table with room away from the main area as requested which was very crowded. Starter of spiced soup was lovely. Salmon main with new...pots and veg, but strangely salad on the plate as well. Lovely mushroom and blue cheese risotto, garlic bread and a bowl of salad, Malbec lovely once it had warmed up a bit. Cheesecake and pavlova good. Coffees good. Service good, but had to wave a bit at the end of the evening. A very nice restaurant with lovely, fresh food. Recommended.More

we ordered a number of meals including 2 lamb shanks and when they arrived we were served in a bowl with 2 rather small shanks & a small amount of mashed potato. Then a very small dish containing 1 piece of brocolli, 3 pieces of...cauliflower, a minimal amount of sliced carrot and some mashed swede - between us !!!! Charged £19.95 each ! Could not believe how poor it was.More

Read the reviews and choose to eat here. Was not disappointed. Had a really good meal, sweet potato curry and rib eye steak followed by delicious raspberry and white chocolate cheese cake.
