Summary

Mixed feedback this year on the Stein empire’s informal hotel-restaurant; fans find the “food can be very good” and a “hidden garden” adds to its charms, but the “poor table layout” continues to irk and “service could improve”“come on Rick you could do better”!

Summary

While it usually attracts some flak, this outpost of the all-conquering Jill & Rick Stein empire received (almost) uniformly positive reports this year – from the “lovely informal atmosphere” to the “classic refined cooking” and “comfortable beds”“but oh, the size of those tables!” (dinky and packed like sardines).

Summary

At its best, this Stein-empire property can deliver “a memorable experience”“a Cornish treat” featuring “excellent” fish and seafood. Its performance is perennially uneven though, and this year’s crop of reports also included gripes about “uninspiring food and wayward service”.

Summary

“Really good food in a friendly atmosphere”; it has had its ups and downs over the years, but this “buzzy” bistro currently seems to be on quite a high; as you’d hope, “superb fish” is a highlight.
