“Great Presentation, service, and price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

The food here looked almost too nice to eat and the bill wasn't overpriced like I expected it to be. I was very impressed.

“Excellent food with spectacular view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Magnificent setting overlooking garden and Lyme bay. On a nice day hard to imagine a better location for lunch. A good set menu with plenty of choice and including 2 Sunday roasts (the lamb was excellent, I often find high quality restaurants do not get Sunday roasts right). Good wine list with plenty of wines by the glass.
Food excellent, beautifully presented and cooked. Service good, friendly and not at all superior or stuffy. Scallops excellent, smoked chicken bland though why anyone should expect that smoking a bland meat will create anything other than smoked blandness I don’t know. Roast lamb good, pink as requested, roast potatoes and carrots just right. Roast Hake beautifully cooked, guinea fowl fine if you like it, I don’t. Green vegetables particularly good, fresh, cooked just right, so many places nowadays translate ‘al dente’ as ‘raw’. Puddings also excellent, fresh, seasonal, balanced not too sweet. A very nice way to spend a Sunday lunchtime. Beware however the cafettiere of coffee, at £4.70 per person it’s grossly overpriced, order a cup of coffee instead at £1.90. But apart from this the prices are, considering all you get including the view, very reasonable.

“Just to say thankyou”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We didn't stay but I want to thank the chap on the desk on Friday night (I think tom?) for helping us out when hixs restaurant left us high and dry, he kindly called 6 different cabs ensuring we could get back to where were staying, he didn't need to help us, we were not guests, but help he did, mark hix should look at sending his staff here to get some training in customer service, thankyou very much for your assistance

“Lovely Family Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Friendly efficient service, the staff couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast choices were extensive from West Country cooked breakfast to smoked haddock or kedgeree. Diner menue changed everyday, all the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The room was comfortable and well equipped with beautiful views.
