My family and I had an amazing meal straight from the beach last Friday. We were served by welcoming staff who were able to advise us on our menu choices. Steak, cheese & bacon burger, chicken fajitas & chilli nachos. Thoroughly enjoyed it all and we even had cheesecake and banoffee pie for dessert - well stuffed!! Will definitely be... More

You always make one mistake on holiday and this was ours! My hubby ordered chilli beef nachos and was very disappointed as it didn't taste like minced beef, it was more like corned beef or quorn, there was no sour cream served with it, he left most of it as it was disgusting! Would advise to go elsewhere as there... More

Only came in for a salad and jacket potato so not really expecting Michelin star standard. However the chicken in the salad was dry ,rubbery and definitely not fresh. Lettuce was brown and warm and the only plus side is for the price of £8.95 there was plenty of it. Unfortunately the morbid taste of the dish left no room... More

We only stopped in for a sandwich and a cheeky lunchtime tipple, so can't review the cooked food. However, the sandwiches (tune mayo, prawn, ham and tomato, bbq chicken and bacon melt) were all decent, if standard, pub fare and were well priced. We had to send a glass of orange juice back because the glass it came in was... More

Both times, the service was excellent, the staff were really friendly & efficient & the food was really delicious, We loved that it's located right on the seafront so you can sit outside & enjoy the sea view when it's...
