Michelin Guide judges described it as follows: ‘A sweet, homely bistro hung with dramatic local seascapes; sit outside for a view of the majestic castle.

‘Classic dishes come in large portions. Check the blackboard for the latest catch; the squid and oysters are must-tries.’

Orders for its Valentine’s Day menu must be placed by February 11 with dishes all ready to just be finished off in the oven at home.
