Find this good beach-side restaurant at the top of a slipway. It has splendid sea views and bills itself as being placed on Britain's most southerly beach.
Local seafood is the speciality, but carnivores and vegetarians have plenty of choice, and seasonal game also figures prominently.
Starters such as 'Smoked Haddock, Fresh Crevettes & Mascarpone Risotto'; 'Potato Gnocchi with a Brie & Stilton Sauce with Wilted Mizuna Leaves & Toasted Pine Nuts'; 'Provencal Fish Soup with Garlic Rouille' and 'Sauté of Veal Kidneys & Chicken Livers on Toasted Brioche with Caramelised Pears, Red Onion Jam & Blue Cheese Dressing' set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by the likes of 'Grilled Fillet of Local Brill with a Lemon & Parsley Potato Cake, Sautéed Sorrel & Spinach, Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & Crab Bisque'; 'Baked Fillet of Salmon with Baby Steamed Potatoes and a Crunchy Fennel, Kenya Bean & Tomato Stir-Fry & Beurre Blanc' and 'Roasted Rack of Lamb on a Potato Rosti with Braised Flagoulets, Roasted Roast Vegetables & Garlic Cloves' listed among the mains.
The sweet-toothed might be tempted by 'Vanilla Crème Brulée with Shortbread' or 'Dark Chocolate Torte with Poached Autumn Pear & Honey Syrup' while cheese lovers can choose from their selection of French farmhouse varieties.
