Our first trip to the quaint harbour town of Looe was rewarded by some of the best seafood my family have enjoyed... chowder, scallops, tempura crabs and haddock were all amazing. Alex, our waitress, was equally good at looking after our party and we were pleased to sit at a window table overlooking the river. A couple of small things... More

The starters were delicious and the mains were good. The ambience was very pleasing. Our overall enthusiasm was dreadfully dampened by the fact that we were cold for most of the meal - to the point of experiencing stiff legs. The radiator was hot when we arrived, but cold (not warm) when we left. We were in the slabbed area... More

The food was good, however unfortunately due to the service our experience was let down. We had all been looking forward to having a year where we didn't cook on Christmas day however, the waiting staff and chef had no recollection of agreeing to provide a separate children's menu, along with a vegetarian option and gluten free option. Which we... More

Lovely atmosphere today for Sunday lunch. The food was really tasty and felt like a real treat. The serving staff were in incredibly polite and we all felt at ease (including the children.) A nice surprise to have live classical Christmas music-the children loved it and joined in!!! Thanks so much.....

It could have been a great evening had the service been more attentive and had Jack the waiter not been so obnoxious. The food was good and great portion sizes, it would be a five star review if it wasn't for the unfortunate service!

A friend & I came here for a meal the other night & we both really enjoyed it. We chose from the set menu. I had the squid, pork belly & then the Creme brûlée all of which were delicious. My friend had the smoked salmon, risotto & cheese board & said they were amazing. We had a bottle of... More

Very good menu, if a touch pricey. Good service with excellently cooked food. Nice views of the twinkling harbour lights. Easier to move around the beamed areas if one is vertically challenged

I recently held my 40th birthday meal here and it was excellent. The staff were brilliant and the food was great. There were 23 of us and the whole evening ran very smoothly which meant everyone has a great time. We go regularly and will be back soon.

Thank MrsEdwardes
