We had a meal here on a Friday night whilst staying in Beer for the weekend. We were not expecting the meal to be as good as it was! From the outside, the restaurant looks a bit tired and worn, so we were really surprised...More

After a walk to Branscombe and back we collapsed on the sofa and ordered a takeaway curry. Good speed of service and a totally acceptable curry but don't expect to have your socks blown off (unless you order a Vindaloo...). Tasty and comforting.

Have eaten here a few times much earlier this year / last year and have always been very impressed with the food and (albeit slightly strange) service. Service still friendly, in that kind of slightly weird way, but the food just lacked something. Generous portions,...More
