The Juke's excellent seafood restaurant is slightly misleadingly named, for although it might be 'cellar' in atmosphere (with its stone walls, a beamed ceiling and tiled floor), it's actually on the ground floor. The evening candles give a romantic air.
The dishes offered allow the true flavour of the local fish to shine through - starters might include the likes of 'Seared Scallops', 'Fresh Crab with Lemon Mayonnaise'; 'Crayfish Bisque' and 'Risotto of Roast Pumpkin with Sage & Parmesan'.
An intermediate course is an option.
Mains perhaps 'Steamed John Dory Fillets with Rosemary Beurre Blanc'; 'Sea Bass with chopped Black Olives and a Niçoise Dressing' or 'Grilled Fillet of Halibut'. There are a few non-fish dishes offered, such as 'Medallions of Beef with Wild Mushrooms and a Dijon Sauce'.
Desserts might include 'Hazelnut Praline Parfait' ; 'Terrine of Layered Chocolate Mousses with Orange Liqueur Custard'; 'Crème Brûlée with Lime' and the like.
