We have just had a very good seafood meal here. The students are very young seventeen or eighteen and they did a fantastic job. The gurnard, salmon and dessert were our favourites out of all the courses. Do the expect perfection,as they are students,but it was a very good meal and very reasonable too.

Had an excellent quality 3 course meal here. You have to bear in mind this is a classroom and make allowances accordingly. The food is better than I have had in many local places - highly recommended

Went to The Horizon for a meal with a friend, however we were refused a seat because it was full...it was empty. Then after requesting a seat, we both ordered a roast dinner. It arrived fairly quickly and it tasted like bloody soil. The chicken was so RAW that it woke up and hecked off. This restaurant did me such a heck, that I'm not coming back again.

Having been told Christmas dinner was excellent we went today and found it rather disappointing. Turkey was sliced into one large lump, sprouts over-cooked and all very bland. Soup quite tasty but not hot and the bread roll under-cooked. Christmas pudding a heavy tasteless lump and mince pies inedible the pastry so thick and hard. The female staff were pleasant but the males were shuffling around looking most uncomfortable. Tables were presented nicely. Saving grace was that they are all youngsters learning a trade, can only get better and it was inexpensive. I might add I have been cooking mince pies for 50 years and they are still thick and hard!
