The experience was ruined for us when we were served pink chicken on one of our courses. We was assured by the waiter that the chicken was cooked but we still feel this is unacceptable when paying £65 a head at a Michelin star restaurant. We expect everything on our plate to be edible / attractive to eat. I was rather shocked that we were expected to just accept the pink chicken. I’m sure that if this was served to other customers they would not be very impressed. The service by the young tall lad was perfect but the response from the more senior waiter, when we notified him, we felt was poor and make the night very uncomfortable and awkward. We hope this feedback will ensure that no pink chicken is served to future customers. Regards.

We loved our food here and definitely think for what is on offer it is good value. There were a few things that let it down for us though. For our pre dinner drinks We were offered a bar stool in a dark corner, whilst guests arriving after us were given a chair at a table. We were moved when we asked but it felt as if other guests were being given more care (perhaps because we are younger than most guests?). We noted that when another group were sat on the dark bar stools, a waiter came and apologised and told them he would move them to our seats as soon as we left. Again... leaving us feeling like were in the wrong place. We were also not offered a basket for my partners handbag, which every other table had. We had different glassware for our water which seemed cheaper than other tables. Though the service was good and the waiting staff clearly were very knowledgeable, we just felt there was an underlying feeling that we were not as important as other guests. Which led to us feeling slightly uncomfortable.

Fabulous meal as usual, the new menu was faultless and the wine suggestion was spot on. Our personal favourite courses were the beetroot and wasabi and the cod, but it was hard to choose!

The best dining experience we have had in years, I do hope the restaurant gets the Michelin stars it deserves. Well done to the chef for the explosion of flavours. The waiting on staff were very professional and attentive. The decor is 'wow'. Fabulous from start to finish. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Lighthouse.

Staff were excellent and very professional. Occasionally we did struggle to hear the food descriptions due to mask wearing being required, but staff were happy to repeat descriptions when asked. All in all a top night and would thoroughly recommend it. In fact we have brought a voucher as a thank you present for friends. We will definitely go again. Many thanks.

Lovely meal and great service! Would be fab if that attached pub had some rooms in so we wouldn’t have to drive next time. 😊

Bar service was slow. No hand sanitiser on entry even though they took are temperatures and all other COVID 19 restrictions followed. Enjoyable evening for a special occasion but would only go again when the menu changes.

Surprised my husband for his Birthday treat at the Lighthouse restaurant. What a wonderful gem! The food was so delicious, all of the courses were amazing. We both LOVE our food and have dined at many beautiful restaurants, this has to be one of our favourites and we will definitely be returning.

The food was fantastic, staff delightful & attention to detail superb. I’ll definitely be back. Only critics is less about the ‘Lane’ NOT to go down & more about it belting located behind the pub.

Really lovely to be back. The only difficulty is being able to hear the staff explain each course from behind a visor with music and background noise. But the food and service were impeccable as always.

We hadn’t eaten out since the national lockdown started back in March. We felt totally safe with the Covid19 precautions The Lighthouse have in place. It was a lovely evening with first class service and excellent food as always. We will be visiting again as soon as possible.

Fantastic meal at The Lighthouse. Very professional and attentive staff. The food was sublime and we both loved the variety, if i had to Pick a favourite it would be the lamb shawarma, tender, delicious and fun to eat. We visited the restaurant whilst on holiday but we Will definitely be back if we get a chance. We had a great evening and couldn’t recommend more highly.
