I had been given a voucher as a birthday present in September and was in no rush to use it as our last visit for Sunday lunch was less than impressive. Seeing our voucher was almost at the six month cut off date, me and my husband decided to use it on this cold Monday evening. Bar was warm and... More

Our entire groundfloor is tiled. We only use brushes and mops for our daily cleaning which is at 8am. We have a large bar and reception area, and have never excluded anyone from those areas. If any cleaning is required, we would assist with relocating them to an adjacent table. There is no TV in the bar area. There is... More

I love everyhting about this restaurant, there is nothing to dislike. It is ideal for an overnight stay too as it is so close to the beach and town center but jsut off the beaten track if you want a bit of peace and quiet. Parking spaces are limited though.
