The Times newspaper has rated James Sommerin’s restaurant – located on the ground floor of Richard Hayward Properties’ Beachcliff development in Penarth – number 7 in its list of Britain’s 20 best places to eat by the beach.

The paper’s Travel Supplement says “former Michelin-starred chef James Sommerin offers white-tablecloth fine dining near Penarth Pier, spot him at work through the dining room viewing window, tweezing microherbs onto a dish of langoustine, turnip, tonka beans and white chocolate.”
