We went for a meal in the bar/restaurant on a Friday evening. We never have a problem with children eating in a restaurant but there is a question of balance and when there are significantly more children than adults the 'restaurant' was more akin to a youth club.

Liz and chef Richie organized a Curry Night, at just under £12 a head, for a 3 course meal. It was FABULOUS! Though it was 3 courses, Liz brought out extra course of poppadoms/dips,followed by the best Indian food i've ever tasted! The mango sorbet was to DIE for....Liz mentioned doing a Mexican night, so really looking forward to that!Superb...

“rooms 1 and 2 have sea views, but are over the bar and can be noisy if you are not taking part in whatever is going on. the rooms at the rear are quieter but without the view.”
