    Simple food, well executed! Fish tacos delish and my 9 year old loved the lobster tail. Friendly staff, relaxed vibe. Definitely worth a visit. Wine list needs a refresh. But I’m being picky. Acoustic entertainment on Sundays.

    We had a visit for lunch and had a fantastic meal. We had several dishes to share including octopus and lamb flatbread which were fantastic.
    The staff were friendly and knew the dishes/menu well which helped us to choose.
    A very enjoyable place to visit and relax whilst looking out to sea

    Pilchards is a firm favorite! The other evening I was walking down the hill into Port Gaverne and passed a member of staff picking fresh fennel for that night's menu. that's what I call fresh and local! I booked a table at Pilchards last week especially so that we could enjoy a summer's evening drink outside before eating in, but still with sight and sound of the sea from where we sat, sheltered but by the open door. Our waiter was truly charming, making sure we had drinks to be going on with while our chosen wine was chilled, and turning down the music as soon as we took our seats inside (for which we were all extremely grateful - we didn't need to ask! ) Our chosen dishes were delicious and we shall return soon! Thank you Pilchards.

    Thought location was lovely
    But sadly the food for me was of poor quality. The lamb was to me inedible as mainly fat ...the service was excellent in future just cocktails for me when I next visit .

    5 of us had dinner there, it was a quiet night, but the staff were great and the food really good. I had the house red and it was perfect for me. Fantastic location and place, with on the beach views of the bay.

  • ((((( 17 April 2019 by Richard from Dorking

    Five of us for diner, absolutely fabulous
    Cocktails to start then into the tapas
    The lamb flatbread was so good we just ordered another one straight away.
    Mussels, duck nuggets, grilled meals with shrimp, all cooked as we ordered them
    We were too full for a desert but had one anyway, they were delicious.
    A wonderful view and a delightful evening.

    Had a great meal at Pilchards on Saturday evening. The food was great, the crabs balls were outstanding. I cannot fault anything with the experience. The waiter was just right, very attentive but not over the top. The service and arrival of meals were prompt but we were still given time to study the menu. Pilcahrds is the first restaurant that I would definately go back to (I have not said this in a long time).

    This is our second visit. The menu is different, varied and lots of fresh local produce. Setting is wonderful looking over the sea, and the staff are attentive and very friendly and helpful. We will go there again!
