Lovely place to sit by the water & relax. The view is lovely & you can sit and have a snack/lunch while there. The food is good, no complaints. Quick & cheerful service. For the size of the establishment, everything is done exceptionally well!

We had breakfast here on the way to the ss Great Britain. It was absolutely chucking it down and we huddled under an umbrella and had the best bacon cobs, highly recommended!

We LOVE visiting the Buttery at the weekends. Yes you have to sit outside whatever the weather! But on a sunny Sunday morning it is the best way to get rid of a fuzzy head! Been going for years, the kids now teenagers love it. The puppy loves it as if you ask for a "dog sausage" they'll find you... More

My bread was stale and filling was wrong so return my sandwich no one said sorry and my new sandwich looked like it had been chucked together.I have gone here for 20 plus years and would have continued to pay the prices but...

Outside café on the dockside, the bacon butty is second to none, best in the area. Don't expect comfort but well worth a visit.

Used to pop down the Buttery regularly when Colin and his family ran the business. Always a welcoming smile and nothing too much trouble, But not so now he sold the business. The quality of service, food has gone down hill. Will not visit again.

This is a great place to go for a proper breakfast sandwich and the hot chocolate is so so good. I will definitely be going back soon.
