With stunning sea views, a welcoming atmosphere, spacious interior and suntrap terrace, dining at Dunes offers a fabulous opportunity to escape the crowds. The impressive menu combines lovingly prepared favourites with more exotic fare, all locally sourced and reasonably priced. We ate from the specials board and started with chef Tom Sandall’s Asian-inspired slow-roast brisket spring rolls and Cambodian beef lok lak. My main was outstanding: two generous fillets of perfectly cooked sea bass with a rich and smoky chickpea, tomato and chorizo stew. My companion savoured the slow-braised pork belly with crispy crackling. For dessert, we shared a tasting plate of warm chocolate brownie, winter berry Eton Mess and the apple crumble, which was an absolute delight. Dunes offers vegetarian and children’s dishes, alongside special menu nights and events catering. There’s also lovely holiday accommodation.
