Exceptional value (<£50)
Family photographs line the staircase of this homely restaurant-with-rooms, in a listed Georgian town house in the centre of a small coastal town. It has been owned and run by Judith and Michael Cooper for more than 30 years. ‘Lovely, caring people’, they welcome their guests with tea and Welsh cakes. The pink-painted house has a ‘lived-in and loved’ interior: the cosy lounge has a wood-burning stove, maps, magazines and games; the sheltered back garden is ideal for afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks in clement weather. Individually styled, simple, bright bedrooms have a selection of books and plenty of local information. Each room has a shower; a shared bathroom is available to guests who would prefer a ‘relaxing soak’. In the restaurant, residents and locals come for Judith Cooper’s ‘high-quality’ modern dishes, which use many locally grown and produced ingredients. Typical dishes: chicken liver parfait, pear Sauterne chutney, toasted brioche; confit of duck, grilled black pudding, mulled plum. Breakfasts, with kippers and local bacon, are cooked to order. Five minutes to the coastal path.
  • Traditional ambience but not stuffy. Exceptionally welcoming owners who also do the cooking. The kitchen is just off the main hall - the door is always open, and they are always available for a chat about things to do locally, the weather, etc. Great food based on local produce. Delicious combinations of ingredients without being messed around or pretentious. Obviously very popular with locals - it was fully booked when we were there. Friendly, well-informed, unstuffy service - several of whom are family. This it is what it says: a restaurant with rooms. So while the rooms are not luxurious or huge, they are very comfortable, fresh and bright. All different - some have a larger bed, some have sofas, one has a side room with a sofa/single bed. Sparkling new bathrooms. Locally made blankets and pictures by local artists. Nice touches like useful shelves for toiletries etc and extra bottled water on a table on the landing. We had a lovely time!

  • A superb welcome and a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Mike and Judy are delightful hosts and very well informed about the locality. The meals were splendid and the bedroom was very comfortable, and the bathroom seemed to be permenantly available for those who like me prefer a bath. We have stayed there twice before and are returning in the autumn - a definitely favourite place for us.

  • One of the friendliest places we have ever stayed in. The bedroom was excellent, and quite substantial for such a small establishment. The quality and variety of the food was outstanding and the service could not be faulted.
