We arrived at 6 on Thursday night and got a table - just! Very busy already, which is always a good sign. A really lovely restaurant/bar setting, many with window seats and views over the beautiful beach area. Dogs are allowed in the bar level (there's up and down stairs seating too) - it was one of the reasons we chose it. The waiting staff were absolutely top notch - really friendly and helpful. The choice of food was great, service was prompt and the food itself was really excellent (I heartily recommend the belly pork and stir fry- wow!). All in all, a great eatery and one that we couldn't find fault with. If you're in Instow (or the surrounding environs) take a trip to the Instow Arms and enjoy the hospitality and food at great value-for-money prices too!
