Having visited on a few previous occasions we had found this venue upmarket, fresh, innovative and highly acceptable as a real treat. Unfortunately this time we experienced pub grub at fancy prices: unremarkable main courses of pork belly and rump of lamb, starters of chicken liver paté and bland duck salad. Unimaginitive cuisine. The restaurant felt and smelt overworked perhaps... More

Had a lovely dinner here with friends last night. Busy, buzzing restaurant, good service and really good food. The best for miles around and certainly up there with Chez Bruce. Good value too for the quality.

Having been a regular here for many years, it is interesting to see the changes. Last night, we went to dinner and had really poor service: no one came to the table for 10 mins after we sat down, we ended up pouring our own drinks and did not have knives and forks. I know staff need experience but better... More

The Light House continues to be the undisputed family favourite restaurant in the area and is first choice to celebrate any occasion. Children are excellently accommodated; the menu always presents a difficult choice with so many delicious options; the wine list is varied but not daunting, suggesting careful selection rather than over-stocking (risking poor storage), and is very reasonably priced....

Ate on a Monday night at 8.45 and was pleasantly surprised how busy the restaurant was and what a good atmosphere it had. Food was delicious and service excellent!

We normally go for a meal in the summer so it was interesting to see how seasonal the menu is, I was concerned at first as everything seemed super meaty and rich but it was all divine as usual! Every mouthful was a treat and we thoroughly enjoyed it - a great ham hock hash to start followed by haddock... More

A group of 5 of us decided to pop in on the off chance of getting a table for dinner. Fortunately it is not too busy mid-week. The service was excellent and the food delicious. I went for the Schnitzel while the others went for Guinea Fowl, Pork and fish. The food was well presented and cooked. Lovely selection of... More

We have been there a few times and to be fair the last time we had a nice meal. However there weren't enough staff so the service was a bit patchy (drinks took 20 minutes to arrive) plus a few things were off the menu or were missing. I think it tries a bit too hard and sticking to the... More

Very average experience. Through a four course dinner the food varied from poor to only just acceptable. I raised a concern to be conveyed to the kitchen but did not receive a response. The atmosphere was dull. The service, at times, was very poor. I have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and being very local have,... More
