Many thanks for your detailed review. It is always good to receive feed back , and whilst we are pleased you enjoyed most of your stay it is disappointing to learn about your issues regarding your meals. It comes as a bit of a surprise because we have only been getting positive comments from our diners since our new head chef took up his position, also based as we are, right on the sea, it is our policy to use only fresh local produce, especially our fish. We have taken your comments on board and will look into why we didn't meet our usual high standards during your visit. We hope we see you again soon kind regards Molly
