Four of us descended on the Hermit for a celebration birthday dinner. The atmosphere is lovely with contemporary decor setting off the old building beautifully. They serve a great range of gins and superb ales and have a well stocked and reasonably priced wine cellar. We were greeted with a warm welcome and after drinks shown to a nice travel with comfortable chairs. Oh and rag napkins, joy of joys not the bloody awful paper ones. Nice cutlery and china as well. The chef does wonders with fresh ingredients and we all chose different starters and mains. I won't list these as they can be viewed on the website but worth mentioning is the fish and chips with glorious light batter and superb chips, the langoustines and cockles in cider, the lamb three ways which was just sumptuous. There was even a birthday card on the table for us. Those of you who read my reviews know that I am had to please and I was very pleased with our meal, the service and the overall value. Excellent - give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
