Catch up and afternoon tea today with my friend today, a treat for her birthday. The service was excellent. The selection of sandwiches, cakes, and scones was varied, fresh and delightful. An added treat, chocolate brownie and lemon posset. Great value for money and I would highly recommend. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

I came to this place for dinner with my girlfriend - we had eaten dinner twice in the area on the previous few nights, but this was by far the best meal we had. We went a little bit overboard and had four courses... An antipasto of baked camembert, which was very nice. The starters were excellent - a very... More

Popped in for lunch after a walk around the harbour. As always it was good with great service ( the very helpful little waiter again ) . Nothing is too much trouble and the new menu still had most of our old favourites. Slightly more expensive than next door but you pay for quality food and service.

Visited here on a Saturday night & very impressed with food quality. Enquirer about how & what was in the starter I ordered & received a visit off the chef expalaining fully how to make it. Very thoughtful & a lovely touch. Main course was even better than the starters. 100% satisfied.

The food in here was beautiful- and good value. The scallops in particular were amazing and the sharer of desserts is a must! The service was pleasant- but no one was overly rushed to get to you. A small criticism in an otherwise faultless experience.

Lunch here is delicious and it was so good I will make sure I return soon either for another lunch or possibly an evening meal. The quality is top class and service was really good.
