Another great stay played hunt the SMURFS but failed miserably. Everyone very friendly and meals are amazing. Close to the promenade if you want a nice walk and a 5 minute stroll to the cinema if you fancy something different than standing in a bar.

Dined here on Sunday 23rd June while on a 3 day break. Food was Excellent & staff were friendly & helpful. The menu was reasonably priced and portions were large. After eating here I would definitely consider staying if returning to The Isle of Man again.
