    Haven't tried it in the current (Sinatras) guise, but we never found it satisfactory in any of its previous incarnations. Burnham has plenty of much better places to eat, see above.

    Ate at Sinatras a couple of weeks ago, very nice steak, good service, drinks a little pricey. Ordered some chicken wings to start with which turned up with the main. They were huge so asked for them to be wrapped up to munch on the way home. They were raw in the middle so got deep sixed in the Wallet!

A simple change of chef, or a new owner can make or break an establishment in no time at all.
    The Kovalam was great in its early years but had declined seriously in recent years. We had a takeaway last night for the first time in ages and it was back to its best. It appears to be under new management so let's hope it wasn't a one-off.

    Also good, and a similar distance, is the Ship at Kirby le Soken. But book in advance; they get full up!

    On an occasion when the Ship was full, we went (on their recommendation) to the Red Lion. Food OK, but absolutely enormous portions - one would have been ample for my wife and I. Perhaps it was just chance, but when we were there everyone except ourselves appeared to be "super-sized"!

    BYH is due yet another reinvention, as Sinatras appears to have gone bust.
