The Ribeye stack was orgasmic and the crispy duck egg with mushrooms was also delicious and for me well proportioned. Service from start to finish was excellent. The bar area may become a little restricting during busy periods but there is great area outside with good views over the estuary and pier. A recommended visit for that special occassion and great food.

Sevice was very slow , food took an age to arrive even though the restaurant was not even half full . The food itself was just ok . The potato’s were not very nice , the meat was very chewy, after the meal every one said the same thing , not great . Without being rude , after that I would not come back

Afternoon tea should be ‘special’. Whilst the food was good (the rolls for the Coronation Chicken were a little dry) and the service excellent, it would have been nicer if the table was laid up with a table cloth and the jam freshly made. This just felt like any old meal at a restaurant.

Fantastic food, great service, Lovely cocktails afterwards. Thoroughly enjoyable evening. The bar area could do with being a little larger but this is just an observation rather than a bad point.

Great environment - stylish, comfortable hotel and dining room (seafront/ pier view). Excellent quality afternoon tea - we were aloud as much food and tea as we wanted and likewise to take as much time as we desired. Service was professional, attentive and discrete - just as it should be at such a venue.

Really lovely staff. Food was good however little disappointed with my fillet steak as somehow i had fat on it but it was easily cut away and did enjoy. So no need to complain. The desert menu wasnt to my liking so we left that nothing wowed me so that was annoying. Would I return? Yes.
