A bar, combined with a restaurant with comfortable rooms - plus a growing reputation for both good food & value for money.
On the food frontchef/proprietor has gained a wealth of experience working for others, and is now translating this into his own venture.
Expect a short menu of mainly local, seasonal ingredients.
Starters on an early autumn menu, included 'Velouté of Smoked Haddock'; 'Organic Goats Cheese with a Salad of Heirloom Tomatoes, Watermelon & Basil, with Whipped Goats Cheese'; 'Endive & Roquefort Salad with Pear, Toasted Walnuts & Mustard Dressing'; 'Black Pudding & Foie Gras Terrine with Granny Smith Purée, Apple & Celery' and 'Liscannor Crab Claw in a Garlic & Chili Butter Sauce'.
Mains, such as 'Wild Honey Tarte Flambée with Lyonnaise Onion, Crème Fraiche, Nutmeg 7 St Tola Goats Cheese'; 'Fish & Chips'; 'Marinated Neck of Lamb Fillet with Ajo Blanco, Buttered Greens, Black Olives, Capers Parsley & Garlic' and 'Grilled Hereford Rib Eye Steak & Chips with Roast Red Onion, Green Sauce, Rocket & Balsamic' might follow.
There is always a selection of interesting daily specials - including fish from the local boats.
Those with a sweet tooth might be tempted by 'Eton Mess'; 'Vanilla Crème Brulée with Hazelnut Sable' or 'Apple & Blueberry Crumble' - a selection of Irish cheese varieties will please others.
