We absolutely love the lighthouse and frequent the restaurant every 3 months. The starters and main dishes are fantastic, however the desserts are very repetitive and often leave us feeling as though the end of the evening isn’t quite as good as the start and the middle.

This is now our 4th Visit. Each time we have had amazing menus and great service. Somehow you even knew it was a visit for mine and my husbands birthday. So the little surprise with dessert was greatly appreciated. We will be back again in December. Keep up the amazing work!!

Another fabulous meal, the lobster mac & cheese is a brilliant new addition to the menu and I really enjoyed my millionaire shortbread take out as an extra bonus the next day. We have been coming to The Lighthouse since it opened and have never failed to be impressed by the quality of the food and the innovation and dedication of the Chefs. I definitely recommend coming slightly earlier for a pre dinner drink at the bar to start your meal off in style!

We usually visit once a year on a special occasion , like all our visits this one was again lovely, the staff are always so attentive and although the cost is a little more than we usually pay for a meal out we don’t mind as the service is exceptional. This times menu was a little hit and miss for me but that was down to personal taste not the food itself, I tried everything and ate almost all but there were a few things which I didn’t manage to finish but I am sure when we visit next year the menu will have changes again and there will be some new excited things to try. Would be really nice to be surprised, I remember afte our first visit how thrilled we were, would be nice to get the excitement back maybe with some sort of surprise course or something more interactive for one of the courses where you have tier involved etc just to make the experience stand out for us again, but will 100% be back next year for a special occasion

Welcome from the girl with long dark hair when we arrived was disappointing, nothing but a “right you can go to your table now” without any smile, hello or offer of a drink first. However the food was sublime! Perfectly balanced tastes with amazing ideas, all beautiful. We had a lovely champagne cocktail to go with our starters and first course. However it is a shame they’ve taken away the wine flights, which we loved previously. Lighting outside is non existent. On a rainy dark night that wasn’t good and they need to invest in proper outside lighting. The atmosphere is slightly lacking somehow which is something I’ve noticed before. I think they could do with a really great front of house person who will make you feel welcomed. But we come for the food, and once again they didn’t let us down. 10/10 but I’d have to drop to a 4/5 overall from a previous review for the reasons I’ve stated earlier.
