Our second visit to this restaurant and as before had the carvery. Have to say vegetables not quite as good as I remembered but otherwise a good choice if you don't want something too complicated. As before excellent waiting and reception staff

“Good Food, Good Wine & Good Friendly Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

I really don't know how they do it for the price. Whether it is the specials, carvery, a la carte, table d'hote or seafood platter the food is very good and at a very low price. Wine is very reasonable by the bottle and there is a good selection of beers and ciders.

Occasionally there is a lack of attention to detail when a sauce is missed on a meal or the vegetables are a little too under-done but this is good traditional Guernsey food rather than Michelin -style

Great service, great staff and great food. I chose not to eat from the carvery and had fresh from the menu. Seafood is fresh and a delight and staff are happy to go off menu if they have the produce.
Menu is just right. Not too much choice but enough to suit all tastes with daily specials.
I'd certainly go back when I'm next on the island.
