My companion Sue and I share the opinion that this restaurant has a definite buzz, a delightful fusion of chatter, atmosphere, appeal and a feeling of general wellbeing you rarely find on your doorstep; a charisma that offers a virtual guarantee of pleasure.

Sue succumbed to the charms of the handpicked Brixham crab cakes with tartare sauce, sweet chilli and tomato jam and lemon. Pacing herself she ordered only one, fearing the demands of three courses would be too much. Her estimate was right, two of these delightful crab cakes would have been too much for her, and after years of ordering totally from the menu Sue has gained a little more confidence in straying from the culinary norm. Others take note, you only need to ask the staff here, they will be happy to help.

Living close to Barkham and having a great respect for cheese, I opted for the delightful Barkham blue cheese soufflé with a butternut squash salad, pumpkin seeds and balsamic glaze. The salad was bursting with flavour while the soufflé retained the lightness any soufflé aspires to - a classic dish reflecting great local produce.

For mains, I chose pan-fried Hampshire beef fillet with cracked black pepper potato cake, glazed shallots and a port wine jus. The timing of Remy and his team in the kitchen was faultless and the presentation showed off an artistic eye for colour and detail. Sue sought out the line-caught wild Cornish sea bass with kale, pan-fried wild mushrooms and baby onions and a red wine jus - a dish made in heaven, especially for someone like Sue, who travels the length and breadth of the country seeking out the finest sea bass dish.

Mya Lacarte has lifted standards to new and improved levels but, more importantly, has ensured that every guest is looked after. No one has to ask twice for drinks; advice on the menu is freely and knowledgeably offered and everything is completed with a smile; the atmosphere inside this restaurant simply sparkles.
