Went here for an evening meal, very pleasant staff, had a window seat upstairs with a wonderful view of the boats and harbour, went the whole hog with 3 courses and we all had different, my husband had the Roasted shellfish as a main course and loved it, also the olives were the nicest we have had. Beautiful homemade desserts as well. Would recommend as a special occasion as quite expensive

Were taken by family for lunch, 4 adults, 2 children. First class service, nothing too much trouble, orders taken promptly, with understanding for the children, and served accurately and considerately.
All of the food was of the highest standard, cooked perfectly and presented nicely.
In summation, a perfect meal served and cooked excellently.
Full marks!

Just the view is worth paying for at the Watch House. But the food is also very good. This is our favourite restaurant in the village. Usually we have their excellent Sunday lunch but it seems in the summer this isn't served. So we went at short notice one evening and they kindly fitted us in. Enjoyed some excellently cooked fish and handout chips and a lovely meaty beef burger topped with bacon and cheese. Hit the spot. And not bad for 42 pounds for three people. This place can be on the pricey side but quality is very good and the view will leave you wide-eyed.

had takeaway cod n chips at the watch house's takeaway window, called watch out. batter brilliant. chips twice cooked and crunchy as hell. ordered a side salad which was dressed beautifully with fresh garlicky vinaigrette, and had watercress in it (a rarity, even in fancy restaurants these days). plus own-made tartare sauce. brilliant, except for the buttered bap which appeared to have been toasted and hence didnt really work as a chip butty.
