We had such a lovely day for our wedding anniversary with friends and family - 47 in all. The cellar is a great location (and the weather cooperated!). Staff were welcoming, attentive and all round memorable for all the right reasons. I would recommend whole-heartedly!

Food and table service was excellent. Personable without being intrusive. We had the mushrooms (each) and the black chicken to share and savoured every mouthful. Lovely to see the support for chapel down beer, wine, sparking and gin too. And we had a lovely surprise - an I requested dessert to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary (my wife needed something to cheer her up!!). Thank you.

We celebrated our kids baptism at the Beacon and the overall experience was fantastic. The food was divine and the service was outstanding. I would always recommend the Beacon.

We had a very enjoyable evening at the Beacon with friends yesterday. The surroundings are lovely, particularly in the restaurant area. The terrace in the sunshine must be super. We think that the menu is a bit limited and perhaps a little expensive but apart from that, we hope to return again soon.

Very disappointed new menu with salads all greenery and no body, too many sharing dishes and too few meat dishes to have on your own seems to be trying to be clever but not pulling it off. Was our favourite summer restaurant but this menu has put us off

Hi visited the beacon on Friday 4th of May for dinner Very pleasant surroundings & staff very helpful went for crab starter which unfortunately contained very little crab mainly brown meat which was overpowered by the lemon oil it was swimming in so would not have that again main course of pan fried hake on a bed of greens was delicious & very well presented so would definately have that again If we were to go back

One of our favourite places to eat and relax. Incredible views. Lovely vibe. Always delicious food. The Sunday roasts are fabulous. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. On a gorgeous summers day like yesterday it’s hard to think of a more pleasant way to spend the afternoon than with friends on the terrace.

Main course of monk fish ...very over cooked; small piece; 2 stringy piece of veg?; 3 small potatoes for £18? Poor value. Left feeling very hungry.

Really disappointed, food very uninspiring. Best course was the crab salad, very small portions. Drinks took a ridiculous amount of time to come. Won’t hurry back.
