Such a beautiful, quaint restaurant. The duck I ordered from the specials board was so full of flavour, slightly over cooked than I like it, but I could easily overlook that detail, given that everything else about it was lovely. My partners carbonara had just the right amount of creaminess and richness! We shall definitely be returning! Thank you very... More

We were given a table in the extension as we were told the restaurant was full. It was a very small room with a sad and neglected air, which was made all the more unpleasant by the gas fire burning. The whole room felt reminiscent of sadder, poorer days and smelled unpleasant. Two families who arrived later than us were... More

It's not easy to find a restaurant open on a Monday evening in Minehead and to find a good one is virtually impossible. Down from London and meeting up with old friends. All the food is freshly prepared so not instantaneous and all the better for it. We had scallops, pasta, pizza and salads plus copious wine. Excellent value and... More

Popped in for a bite to eat as i had a spare half hour or so. Was getting to the end of lunch time but you wouldn't have known it. The staff where so attentive and polite. The young chief knew a thing or too about Italian cooking I can tell you that... it was beautiful. Recommend highly to every... More

Nice find, as looking at the main street in Minehead the selection is rather dire! Friendly, quick service, has a nice bistro/wine-bar feel to it, log fire in corner when we were there. We both had (different) rissottos (rissotti?). Both excellent, mine perhaps a little under cooked (intentionally so?) but so hot that after I had worked through the top... More

We had a lovely evening at this family run restaurant,with the added bonus of choosing an evening when gentle live music was being played by Mickie of Bossa Beleza.The starters of Scallops and Black pudding were amazing and really fresh. My fellow diner ordered a fillet steak which was cooked to perfection,whilst I chose a Pasta Carbonara which was creamy... More
