The staff were lovely, the food was of a very good quality but unfortunately we found the portions to be very small and therefore not good value for money.

Great service and lovely food. Might want to look at your online booking form as I definitely booked fro 5 people but on arrival you had only 2 noted. It wasn't a problem though and you gave us a very good table.

The recent renovation is brilliant. Love it even more than before. The French waiter was brilliant and the food was as food as ever. Bring back the burger though.

This was an unexpected treat. After travelling down from London to visit local friends we stopped here for an evening meal. We had a very warm welcome, excellent food and brilliant service. The staff were very friendly and the food choices and quality of the food was excellent. We loved the ‘casual’ but professional service, and the starter, main, dessert and wine were all amazing! We can’t wait to go back and thoroughly recommend!

The staff were exceptional! They were sincere and had a bit of personality, none of the over the top and fake smiles that are far too common these days. The food wasn't 'bad', it was 'ok'. However, with everything else being so good, it stood out as the weakest element of the evening.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch and look forward to returning! Two of our party are vegetarian and the winter root and fruit salad is a stand out star. Thank you to all of the Cliff House Crew for a very happy and memorable experience xXx

That has to rate as one of the best meals we have enjoyed in recent times. It is a rare occasion when we can get our son and daughter in law to lunch and at the end of the meal his comment was “where have you been hiding this place Dad.?” Just excellent

Lovely views over the bay from the restaurant. The food is excellent and a set menu is an option if you don't want the Al a Carte. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would definitely recommend.

Cajun halloumi dish was absolutely delicious! Sunday lunch roast was very good, but the Chef should check the plates on the pass to make sure there are no burnt offerings ie four cremated carrot pieces! All staff very friendly and service was not blinkered in any way.. very refreshing. Best of luck with this new venture.

An amazing birthday meal with fabulous food and brilliant service. The set menu was absolutely delicious especially the strawberry panacotta and at £20 for 3 courses it is a total bargain. Highly recommended.

Very enjoyable stay after an excellent Sunday lunch. Requested a table by the window and hoped that as we were resident that we might have enjoyed a priority for lunchtime seating. Our room was a little tired but very comfortable. Excellent breakfast and great service throughout.
