Staying at the Palace Hotel, four of us ate here on a wet mid-week evening, having booked a table in advance as the hotel was busy and the weather awful. Service was friendly and attentive, with drinks brought quickly. We were seated in the window, so had great views over the bay.
We opted for the 3 courses for £21.95 option. The starters were a choice of one soup, or a well stocked cold buffet of mets, cheeses, fish and salads. The main courses were served from a counter; we had a choice of braised beef (very good), pork in a runny mustard sauce (OK), poached chicken in a spinach sauce (bland); the accompaniments was a disappointment, boiled and roast potatoes plus a tray of depressing boiled mixed veg. Desserts on the other hand were very good, a variety of cold gateaux and cheesecakes, plus fruit salad and a great selection of cheeses.
All in all, I would say that the main restaurant was poor value for money - a much better bet is to eat in the adjoining bar. You don't have the same views, but they do a great gammon or fish and chips for under a tenner, and the bacon and brie toasted ciabatta with chips and salad for £6.95 was superb!
