Went there with my boyfriends and his family for a coffee and got that they're still cleaning so they can't serve us. The place is not welcoming at all.

A very nice meal of good, wholesome pub grub. The haddock was the best I have had in a long time and the desserts were all very good. A really good find and even better if you get a table by the window overlooking the bay.

I took my father for lunch very impressed by the variety of choices on menu. Dad said his fish was lovely and my roast beef was very tasty. None of the staff appeared to be local but they were very pleasant and efficient.

I went there with my partner to try their restaurant. Quite a few of our friends are there very often so it was our turn to try it. Parking on the back of hotel, narrow roads, sea view.
