I booked for a group of 32 hens to have a meal here to finish off the activities for the day. The waiting staff were brilliant and so so helpful. The lady behind the bar was really nice and when our taxi was late she rang to make sure they had not forgotten us. 5 stars all the way!

Stopped by with some family for tea with the intention of getting some dinner later in the day. Our cups were not just dirty, but filthy; they swiftly replaced them but then served us gone off milk. When we asked if we could have some fresh milk we were told that the milk was fresh and the lumps in the... More

We had a Cajun & lemon chicken burger with crispy bacon and smoked cheese, from the specials board, for lunch. It was delicious! Really fresh and flavourful. The chips were a little undercooked, though. The girls who were working there were very sweet. However, although polite, I felt they were a little inexperienced. We weren't asked if everything was okay... More

Totally brilliant find. large outside balcony area overlooking the sea. You can get the tourist boat here 2.30pm and 4pm. It was a rare sunny hot day when we visited and sat outside drinking a cold glass of Pinot and snacking on Chilli Prawns and Southern fried chicken. would highly recommend. The owner is a lovely lady and you get... More

We visited last week, having been many times before. My father called to make a reservation and very specifically asked if the food advertised in the paper was available and that he was looking forward to the turbot. We arrived and were not expected. The menu discussed was not available as should be pre-booked the day before. The maitre'd admitted... More

Plenty of room both inside and outside. We sat outside on a lovely sunny but cool evening. The menu offered many choices from sea food to meats. Price not too costly either. The service was hit and miss. A couple of dishes didn't arrive and the

I organised for 33 ladies to have a bbq and a dinner in Con's and couldn't fault the food or the service. Good sized portions, we wanted for nothing and staff were amazing catering for everyone's needs. Very happy and would be glad to go back

We had been before for drinks and the staff are great. We went last Sunday and we had the Roast Beef. Large portions and we even were able to bring home a doggie bag for our Jack Russell which she loved. It was very relaxing there and Marian our waitress was brilliant. Would thoroughly recommend it for lunch or a... More

So much seafood, prawns, mussels, crab, smoked salmon and all of it lovely. My husband had the scampi and the quality of lovly and the portion size very generous. The staff... More

We arrived tired, hungry, and frazzled after our original lodging lost our reservation. Our new hostess recommended Con's which was just next door, and it was exactly what we needed. We had to wait a bit because a coach tour had just arrived, but the servers made sure the beer and gin never ran out and the food was well... More
