Reasonably priced Sunday Lunch. Massive yorkshire puddings and roast poatoes, plenty of veg and tasty gravy.....but beef was a little tough, edible but a chew! Fabulous view, warm, clean and cosy restaurant, would go back but not for beef!

recently had Christmas Lunch at the Inn with a group of friends. Excellent meal and service. All food freshly cooked including the 'Brussel Sprouts'. (It was a nice change from having frozen brussels which I hate with a vengeance).

I went here with my Pilates group. It was really good value for a Xmas party. There were lots of people there but the staff managed the crowd very well and when it came to the buffet it all went very smoothly. The compère was good too and we had a round of carols which did not go on too... More

It's always clean, tidy, service is excellent and good value for money. The views are superb and good protection from hungry gulls if sitting outside
