Myself and my partner found this gem on a day out in Clevedon. The staff were attentive, and the food was beautiful. It was lovely to meet the chef and tell him how impressed we were after the meal. Will definitely return!

Pasta lovers can select from every type one could want at reasonable prices. For our most recent visit we chose old favourites; avocado vinaigrette starters followed by halibut in... More

Having had to cancel the last couple of reservations, due to circumstances beyond our control, I had been looking forward to a specific main for some time. All starters were good although over-priced for what they were - apart from one, all in the region of £10. The main I wanted had sold out a day or so previous to... More
