Find this good restaurant, with its modern dining room, in a Regency house just off the Promenade in the town centre.
2009 saw a change of ownership, and menu direction, but chef/co-proprietor Jon Howe has maintained a high standard while introducing his own mark.
The menu changes seasonally, and ingredients have been carefully-sourced - often from small producers. An autumn snapshot bringing 'Swaledale Pannacotta with Peach and Beetroot & Truffle Sorbet'; 'Cornish Hand-Dived Scallops with Pork Belly, Carrot, Anise & Orange Purée & Cumin Caramel' and 'Corned Beef Terrine with Caramelised Onion Purée, Horseradish Cream & Violet Crisps' among the starters.
'Line-Caught Cod with Sweetcorn & Chorizo Succotash, Crab Croquette & Lemon Dressing'; 'Loin of Venison with Lyonnaise Potatoes, Braised Red Cabbage & Artichoke' and 'Roast Loin of Pork with Savoy Cabbage, Apple Purée & Ham Hock Lasagne' listed among the mains.
Desserts maintain the interest - with maybe 'Plum & Almond Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream & Brandy Caramel'; 'Chocolate Fondant with Tonka Bean Ice Cream and Pistachio & Banana Crumble' - or their selection of British Farmhouse Cheeses there to tempt you.
