Came in for a bite after spending the afternoon on Barley Cove beach. Great food. Husbands roasted pulled beef steak was melt in the mouth, toddlers fish and chips super fresh tasty and ample portion. My broccoli soup was super yummy and filling. Very reasonably priced to boot! Definitely recommend the beach and this place for food. Nice surrounds too
