Unfortunately even though it was a Friday night half of the menu was off for 6.30pm table, so disappointing, so went for the burger and it was a little raw in the middle. Not my best day at the Hut, which is a real shame.

Absolutely delicious food in a fabulous setting. Probably the best lobster I've ever eaten.

The food was delicious and the staff really lovely. However service was slow to start with ... being told we can sit at either end of the table and then being told we can’t seemed like there was a lack of communication amongst staff.... and we almost felt like we were being told off ... Also the tables aren’t really big enough to sit 6 people around... it’s a bit of a squeeze. I would defiantly come again.

I’ve already emailed but received no response. I’m emailing to give some feedback on my family’s meal today. I would have messaged you via FB but there doesn’t seem to be that option, so I hope this will reach the attention of the management. I booked a table for four at 3.30, on the recommendation of several friends (one of whom visited you last week). I specifically visited for the octopus, which is on your online menu, only to be informed you no longer offer it. That was obviously disappointing, but not the end of the world. However can I suggest you update your menu online? I asked if I could order the chicken without jus for one of my daughters, and was told yes. Unfortunately this was missed by the kitchen, and my daughter’s meal came out covered in jus. The waiting staff apologised and the meal was replaced but after some considerable wait. Which left a hungry 13 year old waiting. I then ordered two ice cream tubs for my daughters for dessert and cheesecake for myself, plus a cappuccino. The cappuccino came out pretty much immediately but the desserts didn’t follow until at least 25 mins later (by which time I’d drunk the coffee as it was going cold). The restaurant was much quieter by then, so I’m at a loss to understand how it took over 25 minutes to put a pre-prepared cheesecake on a plate and take two ice cream tubs out of the freezer. If I hadn’t have been with my children I would have cancelled the pudding, but I didn’t want to disappoint them. I don’t really like to be negative, but as a business owner myself I think it’s important to know where there are gaps in customer service and experience. I was really looking forward to visiting the Hut, but based on today’s experience, I’d be reluctant to recommend you to others. With kind regards Lucy Jarman

Excellent food, amazing setting but service absolutely awful - we were a family party of 12 and even an ice cream cone took around 30-40 minutes to arrive

Excellent as always. Staff all really friendly. Only 4 stars this time as we had to ask 3 times for some grated cheese for the bolognese but otherwise fabulous as always. We love you guys!

There was one member of staff who really let the level of service down. There were a couple of items on our bill (#1) which were incorrect - should not have been there. But the four drinks which we ordered at the bar were not included. I explained precisely what were the four drinks but bill #2 was wrong still as it was the wrong gin and we had a single not a double. Bill #3 was correct, but I received no thanks at all for saying that the drinks were not included and only “attitude” for the effort caused in getting the bill right. It was a real shame as we had delicious food, great friendly service at our table (it was not our waitress who had the attitude), lovely weather and a great view.

We had a really lovely relaxed evening. I think this restaurant has a perfect balance of being laid back enough for a quiet meal but also ideal for a special occasion, at the same time.

I was blown away with this little gem on a place. Absolutely stunning location and bright and cheerful staff. Super helpful getting us rebooked the next day. I only wish you had a holiday home to rent out on site, As if never leave. Tom and Robbie

Great food and lovely atmosphere. However the service was inconsistent and not to the high standard I’d expect for the price.
