    Generally great. I ate here 2 days running as not much open. My Cornish Crab rarebit had very little crab in it making it an expensive Cheese on toast! I raised this with manager who apologised. Bit of a cheek really at 14 quid!

    Great food - the Hake was cooked perfectly and served with a delicious bed of vegetables and chorizo.

    Absolutely fabulous food, the whole dining experience was perfect. The staff are amazing and a credit to the place and the food is outstanding! Don't bother going to Outlaws, dine here instead, you won't be disappointed! We have eaten in loads of Michelin star restaurants and I can honestly say this is up there with them. Brilliant Chef!

    Loved it all. Portions of sea trout and lamb could have been a bit bigger

    Having eaten, we looked at reviews for The Stargazy Inn. We were amazed to see how many good reviews there were, as unfortunately this was not our experience. However, there were some reviews that matched ours exactly. All had booked the a la carte, and we can only conclude that had we booked the taster menu our experience would have been better. To be offered only two choices for starter, mains and dessert was our first disappointment.Not much of a choice! The food we had was minimal. We expected the dishes to be small, and expected to be quite happy with this. However, there is small and there is tiny! We can only assume they were the same as the taster dishes, which would have been fair enough, but not for a la carte. We were very disappointed, and although we have smaller appetites than most people left hungry. We had previously eaten at Rick Stein's Sea Food Restaurant where their dishes were equally good but of an acceptable size. We left Stein's happy to pay for the good quality food we were given; we left Stargazy angry at paying a similar price for what we had. Sheila Ronan

    It was extremely disappointing. The a la carte menu isn’t really that, it’s a choice of two starters, two mains and two desserts. The portions are insultingly minute and very expensive.We felt that we had been ripped off. Food tasted ok.

    The marmite starter was a strange choice. It was very good as marmite on toast goes but I do not want that for dinner and in my opinion it did not "go" with the rest of the courses. You would have been better off starting with a pate or a small risotto maybe. The rest of the courses were magnificent, well balanced and full of flavour. Left a big impression. Scallop perfectly cooked and the oyster was the perfect compliment and I thought the tomatoe dish was positively inspired, incredible flavours. The fish course was equally magnificent as was desert, The peanuts in the desert should not have worked but it did quite brilliantly. The lamb dish was good but on a big plate the component portions looked very small but the taste was again excellent. That meal reminded me of the first meal I had with a then young Nathan Outlaw at the Black Pig in Rock. I knew then he would make and so will our new kid on the block if he can survive winter. The restaurant is small and when full is a bit noisey but I can forgive anything for the quality of the food. Music may be a bit load and the choice of music seriously questionable. Maybe netter with no music or a bit of soff jazz The staff were friendly and knowledgeable so no problems there. Might have ben nice to go into the bar area for a drink first. I think you might be missing a trick there. Am already telling all my foodie friends so don't give up. It was a very pleasant surprise although my wife thought she was going across the road to see Nathan but even he would have struggled to beat that meal, Marmite on toast excepted. Great evening and at a third of the price of you know who I have nothing to complain about. Keep up the good work Rgds John Wickins

    Excellent meal. We had the 5 course taster menu which was fantastic. Each course delivered flavour and balance in abundance. Hard to choose a favourite as all were simply superb, but the lamb course probably just sneaks it as our No. 1. Plus, the staff were outstanding.
