Lovely location

It has a lovely conservatory overlooking the beach. I have had decent veggie options each time and service is friendly and efficient. The conservatory is upstairs and there is a patio overlooking the sea for disabled.

We only had drinks here but it was a nice atmosphere with lovely views of the sea and beach. We had a coffee and cold drink each and sat and read and enjoyed the view, without feeling we were in the way or using a table up when not eating. Manager was a bit miserable and could improve on her... More

The food is fantastic, a little pricey. The views from the restaurant are lovely. Friendly staff and fast service.

the view would have been great if it hadn't been for the mist. only went there because every where else was closed. Friendly staff good ale nice setting though it could have done with a bit of heating on in the restaurant. Food was good, portions were excellent, imagine it would have been more atmospheric if more people were in... More

Ideal position, right on the beach, coupled with good food and an excellent drink selection. The outside seating is just right for when the weather allows. The interior seating is comfortable, spotless and offers some beautiful views over the channel.

We visited as a family group of 7 on a Saturday evening. The menu was varied and interesting. We had a starters and main courses, every item the 7 of us had was great. The server was fun and attentive. I would very happily eat here again. JG

Great restaurant, literally on it's own 'On the Beach'! Fantastic views from literally wherever you are seated. Would recommend booking. Wide ranging menu with meat and seafood as well as specials. Meal for 3, just mains with alcoholic drinks around £35. Worth going just for a drink and the views as well.

Five of us had lunch outside on the day after Easter Monday. It was a beautiful day and the setting here was perfect for such a day. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks and we would definitely return if we were in the area

lovely restaurant, wonderful food and polite staff. We were seate in the conservatory and the view was lovely. However, in the dark the lighting is extremely low and reading the menu was extremely difficult. I was lucky to have a small torch at hand for this. I would definitely eat here again and I will make sure I have a... More
