By far the best breakfast on the "Island" also does meals throughout the day , with the latest addition being draft beer & football on the big screen, perfect ! Great location plenty of parking also the added advantage of having a large paddling pool outside, so whilst the kids enjoy themselves you can enjoy your food/drink in relative peace,... More

We came here on a very wet Thursday in August with our two children and Mr's mother in tow. The place was packed but the man who greeted us at the bar quickly found us a table and we were soon sat down with warming drinks. Our food was good and brought out in good time given how busy it... More

A little treasure stumbled on away from the main drag. Do not overlook this place, Sky sports available, free Wifi and excellent food.

So lucky to be local, food as ever perfectly cooked, didn't have to wait long, didn't have to have set breakfast , tweaked it to our likes, friendly staff, beautiful views , spotlessly clean.

Family visit to the area with 4 year old child. Lunch was very tasty and fairly priced. Youngster and parents enjoyed the paddling pool. Only downside is the lack of seating around the paddling pool.

We stopped for lunch here on our recent holiday. I ordered mushroom omelette with salad and it was perfect, great omelette and a really interesting salad with the usual stuff plus carrots and beetroot with a tasty dressing. Between the four of us we ordered a selection of cakes which we shared and all of these were delicious.

Lovely family friendly place to visit very convenient right beside the harbour and beech. The kids loved the paddling pool right outside which is based on the shape of the island (bring a change of clothes as they do get wet even with trousers rolled up). Food was lovely, staff couldn't have done more for us - we definitely be... More
