Lovely lunch, quick and friendly service.
As always, really enjoyed the delicious food and friendly welcoming staff. We booked a table for nine guests at 11.45am for lunch on Sunday 23rd. It took over an hour for our food to be delivered which was a real shame. I had to ask a couple of times if it was ready. Sadly we were very disappointed that it took so long. But we enjoyed all our meals once they did arrive. We will definitely be back!
Food was delicious and views out to sea great. Restaurant was very busy and noise levels were such we could hardly hear each other. One member of the table of 9 wanted loaded fries from the bar menu but was told this was not possible. Whilst I understand this is to stop people from filling the restaurant area & only eating bar food, as the other 8 people were ordering full meals I think that there could have been some flexibilty as the food must come from the same kitchen! We had booked a table for 2.15pm but once we finished our mains and asked to see the desert menu we were told service had finished at 2.30 so deserts were not available. Again ... disappointing service. That aside we had an enjoyable visit, enjoyed our food and drink and would return ... just maybe a little earlier so we could have pudding too!
Excellent lunch, lovely staff. Thank you.
There is nothing my family and me do not love about The Perch! The staff are amazing, every one of them which is rare in busy establishments. The food is always cracking and the location is the cherry on top!
Our waiter was excellent!
Your staff are absolutely amazing, always a warm welcome and nothing is to much trouble.
This was our second steak night and as usual, the Perch delivered excellent food by friendly helpful staff. Always a pleasure to dine here.
Excellent roast dinner with a friendly, well paced service in a lovely setting. Looking forward to my next visit.
Please note after 4 pm on Sundays they only serve roast dinner...nothing suitable for young children except cake from the coffee bar !
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. My wife really enjoyed having her 40th Birthday meal here as we love the place so much. I know it cant have been easy with a booking for 18 people but you made it look effortless. All your staff are a credit to you and all very friendly - See you again soon!
As a party of 4, we booked for lunch on Sunday evening. The service was excellent. All staff were very helpful, happy and proactive. The food, too, was excellent. HOWEVER.........the constant barking of a dog at the next table, coupled with two toddlers intermittently screaming at another table, meant we were not able to hold a conversation......let alone enjoy our evening. Reluctantly we left immediately after paying our bill, as we felt unable to stay and enjoy the wonderful desserts offered. We had previously visited on a weekday morning for breakfast, and although full of dogs and toddlers, they were all quite well behaved. We know that your policy is to welcome both dogs and children, so realise that we will not be able to take the risk and return. A great shame, as you have an excellent team and a fabulous chef. We had recommended your establishment to many of our friends after our first visit, bur have now changed our view and communicated that to them. Should you ever change your policy, not to allow dogs in your restaurant, we would return.
Great Sunday roast 😀
Loved it - go for the roasts!
Always greeted well, view fantastic. Nothing to complain about.
We were a party of 12 celebrating a birthday and mother’s day, Staff, service and food were great 👍 definitely returning soon. Thank you x
We had a lovely Mother's day meal, I was so impressed as I put in my dietary requirements (vegan /celiac) which quite often means that I go without or very little choice but they specially prepared me a alternative... Absolutely over the moon!. The rest of the party who were all meat eaters were equally impressed. We all went home completely stuffed!. Service was excellent and all staff were very attentive. Beautiful views and a wonderful atmosphere, cant wait to go back.
My only negative comment is We ordered our drink and food and it was there within 10 mins and it all felt s bit rushed, appreciate it was a long day for staff and busy being Mother's Day but just a little breather to have a drink and chat before eating would be far nicer.
We totally loved our visit. Only thing I would say is to maybe explain that the kids mini burger really is tiny. We had to order an extra portion as my girls were still hungry, plus they loved the burger. Normally fussy small eaters! Thank you. Perfect early mother’s day treat.
Amazing staff, very approachable, helpful and friendly. Xx
My main criticism is that our table was really far too small to accommodate 2 serving platters. We were sat in a “ booth” as the window seats were reserved for a table of 10 who actually arrived as we were leaving. It was noisy but understandable as it’s ideal & welcomes young families. The food was not hot enough.
Excellent service as always. We'd made an error on the booking and the team bent over backwards to sort and make us welcome. Despite the madness of us having lots of children, we were well looked after by the team. Thanks for a lovely Sunday roast!
The whole meal was excellent, the service from the staff was 5 star . Great that your allowed to take your dogs in there as well. The views out to sea are fantastic. So much meat , we had to ask for a doggie bag to take some home for the next day . Would highly recommend.
Despite having two previous really good roast experiences here we were a bit disappointed yesterday. The menu said the beef was pink so when it arrived not pink at all I expected it to be rectified easily. I was instead told that was how the roast joint should appear, but others on the table were indeed pink. We then recieved two slices of pink beef in exchange for two over done slices. Very long wait for wine after being told the machine wasn't working. The Atmosphere was good and we felt very comfortable despite being a group with many children. I love the location and general normal experience, we were just let down a bit on a couple of things this time
Ate at the perch for the first time on the steak evening, the service and food were superb! Couldn’t fault a single thing. Will be coming back again and again.
