Situated exactly half way between Manchester and Birmingham this is a convenient place to meet up. We have eaten twice at the Lighthouse and will keep coming back.

The young chef produces delicious food, well presented and from a menu that offers variety without being overlong.

Front of house is friendly and efficient. The amuse bouche and sorbet pallet cleansers added a touch of class. The wine list is short but priced very affordably.

We wish this restaurant continued success but being so deep in the country must be a disadvantage. There were only three tables in for Sunday lunch which is a travesty for such a good place.

Excellent menu and excellent food. The Lighthouse punches above it's weight having all the expectations of better known fine dining establishments. I would recommend this small restaurant without reservation. Have now been twice, Saturday and Thursday and both equally enjoyable.

We had our wedding reception at the Lighthouse. Rhi and Jon were fantastic throughout the planning process and amazing hosts on the big day. They made all of our guests very welcome and every single person enjoyed their meals thoroughly. The restaurant was a great venue and no request was too difficult for the team to organise for us. Best day of our lives and we had 60 extremely happy guests. A big thank you to Rhi, Jon and the rest of the team. Highly recommended to all.

Was at the lighthouse this Saturday & once again was impressed with the quality of service & food. It did not dissapoint, it is the lttle things that matter too - bread without having to pay for it, sorbet in between courses, napkins opened & placed for you beautifully presented food & then there is the food itself which is really really good i would say michelin star standard. If you haven't been yet you should go
