Locanda on the Weir
Warm welcome, friendly knowledgeable waiter. Quiet classical music just audible. Lovely views of Porlock bay. The celeriac soup was amazing and the duck was melt in the mouth delicious accompanied by a good veneto wine. A delicious pudding and complimentary limoncello rounded off a perfect meal. Not cheap but well worth the money - highly recommended.
I can not fault the food as it was lovely, but the atmosphere was very subdued,the waiter seem ill at ease with his position ,which didn’t help the ambiance ..
Would you recommend Loconda on the Weir to a friend? This seems like a good place to start; yes ut with provisos.
Booked and visited in February, our experience was that the resteraunt felt cold as did the toilets.
The temperature appeared set to meet the staffs needs not the the dinning clients. I don't feel the cold!
A reasonably attentive welcome followed by reasonable service as first and main course were served.
Although not full the resteraunt was noisy, music not well considered for the the environment and, on occasion, too loud. Detail such as this matters. No soft furnishings or curtaining in evidence to absorb sound.
Our experience of the food was mixed, starters very pleasant, my wifes main thoroughly impressed, my pasta dish distinctly average. The desert menu was very limited and no choice of coffies, no desert wine or cheese on the desert menu. Omissions it seemed to us.
So to this point a mixed experience. We really wanted to enjoy this meal but felt that it was somewhat lacking particularly as the service dropped off towards the end of the evening at which point we found ourselves collecting our own coats and having no host to say goodbye to.
All in all somewhat underwhelming. My wife would recommend to a friend on the strength of her food. I wouldn't. Too many gaps. Hope this helps.

Visited Locanda for the first time on Valentine's evening with my wife and had a fabulous evening. We eat from a set menu and each course was a sumptuous delight! The chef came and spoke with us after and the front of house and table waiter were lovely. Particularly loved the local oysters. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for posting your review, we are truly delighted you enjoyed the evening at Locanda and look forward to your next visit. Thank you for your valued custom.
