Amazing views, food was amazing. Service was great - I was in my lunch hour and I got to eat and relax without being late back to work. My first visit to the Beacon, having been to the swan and twenty six, which are both great but the Beacon I think the beacon is my favourite! Will come again - love the work of all the chefs and all your restaurants. Thank you

Everything was as I expected with good service and food, however the portion size of the fish I had for a main course was tiny. It was literally 3 mouthfuls. I had the Halibut (note it is on the menu as halibut not fillet of halibut) costing £24 so £8 per mouthful. I think you should state the weight of the fish on the menu so customers can make an informed choice. This is the second disappointing meal we've had at The Beacon after having to return a steak last visit which was almost completely fat and gristle. Unfortunately we won't be returning any time soon.

The Beacon never fails to be anything other than fabulous. The food is consistently wonderful, and the staff always attentive and charming.

Our vegetarian meal guest couldn't have the roast potatoes/gravy as containing meat/cooked in animal fat, would be good to have a portion of veggy friendly potatoes/gravy for them (she said everything else was fantastic just missed having those bits) Everything was fantastic and staff were brilliant, thank you for a lovely birthday, my friends were very impressed and several mentioned visiting again (I definitely will be!)

Be great to see a few more Veggie options. We had a member of the group who is a vegetarian and the choices were limited. Given food trends towards meat free diets would be great to see this. Otherwise a great evening, thanks you!

Excellent food, if a little pricey. Intimate and verdant views over the valley. Surprised you don't mention the views on your website; that's your best feature. An enthusiastic bonfire gate-crashed proceedings a number of times. Service was always friendly and charming, but things didn't always come when we asked for them. For example bread with the cheese only arrived on the third time of asking, and by then we'd finished the cheese course.

After a slightly disastrous visit in May last night was great. The avocado starter was particularly amazing. Would definitely return.

Besutiful spot. Food very good - hake with samphire was wonderfully flavoured, the fish cooked just right and the chips superb. Service was charming but a little inefficient which was the only slight negative of an otherwise delightful lunch. Will definitely return and recommend to others.

My birthday luncheon party last Saturday in the cellar room was an amazing success. From the moment I contacted Jenny cook everything was handled so professionally and efficiently. The party itself was overseen by the remarkable Justin with Dan doing a sterling job at the bar. Justin's attention to detail was superb, as a result the whole occasion ran without a hitch. The food was superb, the wine excellent, and the whole occasion appeared as joyful for the hard working staff as it was for all my guests. Can thoroughly recommend for any celebratory occasion.

Lovely setting, friendly & attentive service. At its best on a sunny summer's day, but delightfully cosy in winter too.

Although we had a 3.00 Sunday afternoon booking we were very disappointed not to to be able to have our first or even second choice of roast. Had to settle for 3rd choice! A nice roast but not what we wanted!
