Cheap and cheerful

Food was average, staff friendly but very busy and crammed in the main season. Close to all shops, bars and beach so central location.

Went in on the of chance and decided to give the carvery a go. The portions were spectacular and everything was freshly cooked (no frozen veg).Three different meats available. Would highly recommend and would admire anyone who can clear their plates

Not a good place to visit, only stayed for one drink as wanted to leave straight away. The whole place is dirty, carpets falling apart, I would dread to think what the state of the areas we don't see are like, it is a food safety & health and safety hazard.

Tried the breakfasts here in summer and was sorely disappointed but thought it may have been due to the fact that it was peak season and they were busy and so gave them a second chance. Biggest mistake ever! Dirty, tasteless and definitely won't be returning!
