Stunning little place

Popped in after walking past looking for somewhere to eat while on my family holidays. And the staff were very friendly, warm and inviting. Food was very good. The thing that lost them a star was the cheap bun used on the burger I had apart from that very yummy.

Visited camber sands for the bank holiday weekend and came across this lovely place! Had lunch there one day and went back for dinner the next day. We hadn't booked reservations for dinner and when we turned up they was fully booked but they still squeezed us in. The staff was very friendly and smiley. My Daughter hadn't eaten much... More

Eight of us (3 generations) popped in here for a quick evening meal. Good choice on the menu and the specials board. Everyone got something they wanted and the food came quite quickly despite it being quite busy. Plenty of clean plates and happy faces. Graham (the owner) is very friendly as are his staff. All in all a great... More

I'm a great believer that you should always choose the thing on the menu that the restaurant specialises in and choosing the fish and chips certainly didn't disappoint. Both were freshly cooked and the portions were a good size. This cafe is a bit different to the other places on offer and made a welcome change. The owner and staff... More

Myself and partner plus 2 teenage girls visited here to escape the awful Pontins food. We were all very impressed with service, food and VFM. Will visit again when in the area.

Went for a meal here a year ago, as we staying a few doors away and don't remember it being that bad. Visited very recently and it was awful. Thai red curry sauce, straight from a jar, inedible scallops, cheap fish fingers and nuggets, owner pleasant and didn't charge for the scallops, but won't be returning a third time!

Ate here one evening with my husband and 2 small children. Great atmosphere, loved the surf design. Service was efficient and friendly. They were happy to accommodate our request to order a children's portion off the specials menu, which some places are not happy to do, and also to split a dessert between the kids. Food was tasty, pub grub... More
