Stayed for two nights. The ONLY disappointing thing was the weather !!! It was spotlessly clean,tastefully decorated, had efficient and considerate staff. The food was stunningly good, beautifully presented and a delight to savour..looking forward to returning.

We had a lovely visit for breakfast. The restaurant is very stylish and we were made to feel welcome. The breakfast itself was top quality and well served to the table. The accompanying toast was served with chef's home made marmalade. Best breakfast in Topsham!
