We just had an excellent dinner at the Step House. I found the staff helpful, pleasant and accommodating. The surroundings are charming and inviting. We all enjoyed our meals from starters to desserts. The Smoked Salmon is excellent and comes from the Goatsbridge Farm. The pate, the mackerel, and goat cheese salads were excellent. The burger, duck, beef dishes were...

We had the duck and the sea trout and they were among the best meals of our trip. The staff were very...
