I had lunch in The Old Watch House after having a lovely Sunday Lunch here before. However our lunch was not to the same experience as the Sunday Lunch. My mussels had no flavour at all and were really small which really surprised me as we are right by the sea. I had to dip each one in tartare sauce... More

Lovely place for a coffee or lunch on the terrace overlooking the harbour. There is also a large restaurant inside with great views but in the evening there is limited daily opening. Been lucky enough to see dolphins in the bay from the terrace twice now. Menu is quite extensive, reasonably priced and a good veggie choice. A good place... More

We also sat at the window over looking the beach, and were treated to a wonderful, display from the bottle nose dolphins and a seal, just off the shore. They were herding the little... More

This restaurant was only open on Friday evening but it is the end of the season. Good friendly service. My salt and pepper squid starter was excellent as was the seafood pasta. My husband had beef stroganoff and said it was wonderful. All washed down with a nice glass of wine - well recommended.

Hi, my wife and i stopped here due to the place were advertising "Fresh Crab Sandwich" , we sat outside on a veranda. This was cluttered and tired looking.

Good views but expensive for what you get. Tables cluttered and food poor. This place is only busy because of its position
