As couples arrived we were all seated on the same side of the narrow restaurant......not normally a problem but there was one customer who seemed to dominate the space and we learnt more about her than we wanted to!! The food was excellent but the...More

Did you not see the Specials Menu with all the old favourites plus some new ones? And please don't describe our delicious locally sourced dishes as 'pub grub'. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sad face indeed...

Thank you once again for a super evening. We enjoyed the steaks from the new menu and cocktails. Only wished we lived closer so we could come more often.

Having visited on several occasions it is time I wrote a review. A lovely little restaurant in a small village off the beaten track. Presumably this was originally a shop judging by its large glass windows. Not large inside, it can be noisy when full....More

We used to like dining at La Perla as it was an evening out, somewhere to look forward to, and dress up a bit. Beginning with nibbles and bread, and an amuse bouche, we studied the previously interesting and varied menu at our leisure while...More

We're disappointed with your review and sorry that you have described La Perle as mediocre. We still source the beautiful ingredients that go into our dishes locally and have a Specials Board which brings variety to the menu. This is neither fast food nor pub...More

Thank you for your review and feedback. It is sometimes tricky to offer the right portion sizes for everyone and we do prefer to err on the side of generosity rather than being stingy! And good advice to book ahead too.

I am at a loss to understand your comments. We now offer more starters, mains and desserts, so 'little choice' is simply not true. We also have a Specials Board to add variety to our menu. You say that your food was well cooked and...More
