Staff very helpful and pleasant. Lovely lunch! Will obviously return.
Great food and service. Quality, taste, quantity and price all in harmony:)
Superb piece of cod with peronata on new potatoes and samphire. Only negative is no non-alcoholic beer, but they do serve Meantime, so I had the real thing!
V quiet as a Monday night, but still a nice ambiance. Food was absolutely delicious! Inventive first course of courgette fritters and haloumi, then a huge pork chop cooked to tender perfection. Will be back and can thoroughly recommend
It was our first time at Light on the Common. The staff were friendly, and the level of service was good. Unfortunately we found the food distinctly average, and some things just not good at all (my Mum's sourdough toast which was served with her pate was too hard to eat, and the sweet chilli sauce with the squid was more like a syrup). All in all we found it disappointing, particularly when you consider lunch for two with a bottle of wine came to £90 incl. tip.
We had a delicious dinner last night in this friendly and cosy village restaurant. The service is excellent and the menu is fantastic - really varied and we all fancied many dishes on the menu. They have a great value set menu which I opted for. They were very understanding with my allergies and catered accordingly. Will definitely be coming back for dinner. It’s already a breakfast favourite.
A very good local staple. 5 of us had dinner there last night and it was a good choice for a friends' night out. Service was friendly and attentive, food was above averagely good, portions spot on (large, if anything). Only small niggles might be the overly bright lighting and the lack of a cocktail menu, but overall a very good evening only a few steps away from Hemingways (which is a very good cocktail bar).
Quiet Thursday night as only 3 tables occupied. Service fine and attentive. Menu changed since last visi two months ago. Thought the menu was less varied and we all thought not as good as usual, especially the selection of main courses which were disappointing. Set menu bland and what you cook at home cod and potatoes or pork and potatoes. Loud waitress sitting doing nothing but shouting at her two colleagues,not what wanted to hear. Food ordered was satisfactory, courgette and halloumi stater good. Chocolate fudge cake was dry. Shall check menu before visit again.
Excellent as always. Went for mums 70th. Every dish we had was delicious and every plate wiped clean. At end of the meal staff sang happy birthday and bought her a lovely little cupcake with candle to blow out/ a great night and we will be back.
Great little restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food! We had the salt beef hash which was delightfully delicious! After chicken for our main course we were so full so could only manage a coffee!
