We were here on a very busy Saturday night for a family celebration - youngest guest 2, oldest guest 94 -The restaurant was completely full (but you are not crammed in) the restaurant is lively but not noisy and has a great atmosphere. I have eaten here on a number of occasions but only 4 or 6 of us. As... More

We've booked a table for 4, on mothering sunday and the restaurant was buzzing when we sat down. We had a table by the window, with spectacular views. The drinks we ordered came very quickly and were very good. Although the restaurant was fully booked, the food came out very quickly and was amazing. I had the Ho! burger, and... More

Booked a table in advance for 19 people, even pre-booked food. However, due to nice weather and a wedding party they appeared short of staff. We were therefore not treated as well as i think they would have liked, and were late being seated and served. Saying that, i cannot criticise the staff who were friendly and working extremely hard.... More

Four of us ate here this week, as we have done many times before. Why do we go there, well you only have to look out from this lovely Restuarant out to sea. Add friendly Staff and reasonable food etc. We went on a Thursday night, and there were quite a few people in there already. Menu has been pretty... More

Had a wonderful meal, moules, duo of lamb, holumi and creme caramel. All food was excellent albeit holumi was slightly dry but didn't detract from the overall quality. 2 gin and tonics enjoying the view on our 20th anniversary thus couldn't be better! Staff excellent and attentive.

The burger was pre cooked and warmed up, the onion rings were soggy and dripping in oil. We asked them to be replaced and informed that this is how they are served and true to their word our replacement ones were exactly the same. The prawn cocktail was all mixed leaves and very little prawns. A very disappointing meal their... More

Thank you for your review. Our burgers are sourced locally from either Devon or Cornwall and are never 'warmed-up', our burgers are always cooked fresh, no exception. Sorry you felt they were warmed up and sorry about your onion rings; I agree the chef should have let them drain before they were served to you. We did take some money... More
