    The service was excellent but I was disappointed with the vegan selection. It was fairly busy but we didn’t have to wait long for our order and the staff were very helpful & friendly. I personally felt my vegan salad, whilst tasty, was quite expensive for what it was.

    Great location on the beach at Lanvinv. Excellent parking and the food was really delicious. Quick and efficient service. Only downside is it can be quite noisy with lots of dog walkers.

    Great quality brunch, served by a lovely but efficient waitress (Charley) who served us with good humour despite some members of our group faffing over their orders! It's noisy with lots of dogs and children with family groups at the weekend, and tables are close together, so not a good place for a business meeting, but great for a friends get together. We had a booth for the 5 of us in the back corner which worked well. We had 2 hours to enjoy your brunch booking before they were looking for our table back for lunch sittings. Nice view of the beach and sea. All good!

    Staff were very friendly. Attentive but not overly. Was really good to be able to bring the dog to eat with us as this isn’t an option in every restaurant. Food was outstanding. So although seemed a bit pricey was worth it. Good quality. Plenty of it. Puffing ansxing although not enough room!

    Can’t fault the food, that’s superb. Staff were also lovely. My only issue is for a very popular restaurant/cafe it seemed there was only two high chairs. Holding a year one who doesn’t stop moving isn’t the most enjoyable thing to do while eating lunch out. I understand he could have sat in a buggy but having buggies everywhere would have clogged up the walkways which would have made it harder for waitresses to serve food. Having known my son would have been sitting on my lap, I wouldn’t have booked the perch. I think it needs to be clearer there’s a chance you won’t get a high chair. Or invest in more high chairs. Unfortunately I won’t be returning due to this issue.

    We had a fabulous time for lunch! I had asked for a window seat and arrived early to secure which we got! Shame the weather was so miserable! Food and service was all excellent! The deserts were wonderful also! We will be back to try the Roast! Also looking forward to coming back when the weather gets better! Thank you for a lovely Mothers Day afternoon! My only comment was it did get very warm but an opened window resolved that!

    Had a great meal put with my family. The waitress and staff were helpful and friendly but best of all the food was delicious. We were two salads and two burgers between the four of us and two of the delicious desserts and everyone was very satisfied and happy. Would absolutely go again and again to try the full menu out ! :-)

    I have been to the perch a few times but have not done the sharing roast. Yesterday we went and it was amazing! Everything was hot and cooked to perfection. The beef especially was very good, cooked rare and the best yorkies. Well worth the money. And oh the sharing crumble was so good and soooo much custard. Will definitely go again and again

    Love this place. We are visitors to the area and have been twice. Steak sandwich and chips. FAB. Lovely views. Dogs welcome. What's not to love? In the summer this place must be heaving. We were there in February, mid week for lunch and were glad we'd booked as it we got the only spare table. A local treasure.

    Five of us ate here on a wet Sunday morning at end of February. Despite the weather the place was pretty much full with a lively and friendly vibe. We all had different dishes and each of us thought the food was superb and portion sizes generous. Coffee was good too. Would recommend without hesitation.
