A light six course tasting menu the land and sea menu centres around a selection of seafood. Beautiful home made breads with flavoured and smoked butter helped make this meal a little more filling as portions were certainly nouveau cuisine sized.

Great meal with local produce. Get the wine flight if you're having the tasting menu 👌. Simple, tasteful atmosphere too - a delight.

The views are stunning whatever the time of year. The Three Chimneys is famous for specialising in the freshest local produce including wonderful seafood from the immediate coastal waters. the restaurant has been owned by husband and wife, Eddie and Shirley Spear. The couple bought the traditional stone-walled croft house in 1984 and developed the business into what it is today, with an amazing worldwide reputation. The Three Chimneys has won countless awards and accolades. Head Chef, Scott Davies and his Brigade of young chefs are passionate about preparing and cooking the finest local ingredients.
