This time we went on a Saturday night and found it a bit noisy. Previously we had been on a Thursday night. Food and experience is fantastic.

Enjoyed Mixing with locals in the newly refurbished pub, was shocked to find restaurant priced drinks in the local pub though. Speaking to some of the locals they were also not impressed with the prices. The service we received in the restaurant was not the best, it took 20 minutes to receive our drinks and they were only delivered when reminded. Food overall was okay, final desert was very dry, so I did not eat much. some of the jells used were very overpowering and spoilt some of the dishes. Overall a very overprices average meal. Setting very nice.

Excellant meal and service. All dishes on the Summer menu at least 7/10. Favourites being the Tomato and Turbot, and although good the least favourite was the chilli.

As someone who is lactose intolerant, I felt I was really well catered for and didn't miss out on the great flavours in the courses!

Unfortunately we had to cancel our reservation at late notice due to ill health but we have dined here several times before and it's fabulous. Also the member of staff who handled our late cancellation was excellent and sympathetic

The food is always innovative, delicious and beautifully presented. The 5 course menu was perfectly balanced and the lemon desert a real highlight to finish on. The atmosphere was great, with all the tables full and we were particularly impressed with the new bar area where we were expertly attended to. All the waiting staff were friendly and courteous, although we did have to encourage them to bring us the wine list. All in all a great evening and I feel very lucky to have the restaurant on our doorstep. Keep up the good work 😀

Another great culinary experience at the lighthouse. Loved the new bar area for pre-drinks- very tastefully decorated. Loved the latest themed menu with the usual exceptional service. Looking forward to returning later in the year!

Wish we had realised that it was only a taster menu.No choices whatsoever... it was fabulous, but we weren't mentally prepared! So tell us when the reservation is made and confirmed. It would be nice to have an a la carte menu too if possible - why not...?
