Reading the last few reviews I would have walked on by but going further down the list told a truer picture. We broke our long coastal walk for a well earned break and enjoyed a superb crab sandwich washed down with a very pleasant bottle of wine. Very friendly staff and good service. Lovely location and all felt we would... More

Whilst the food is still pretty good and the service was ok it the menu somehow lacks the originality of its previous incarnation maybe the long season had taken its toll on the staff

Enjoyed a great breakfast here on Saturday morning -good choice ,very friendly staff.We then came back in the evening & again had a very nice meal. Interesting menu,well priced, especially the choice of fish - the curry was amazing. Looking forward to returning hopefully before they close for the winter.

We were staying in the area and happened upon this little café on the beach front. We visited in the evening, loved the food, which was above café standard, and went back again later in the week. All three of us enjoyed it just as much second time around and my haddock and chips were delicious.

We went here for an evening meal when staying in the area. We ordered the bread with oil and balsamic to start and I would say the bread was stale - quite hard and very dry. To try to cover it up they'd cut it into small cubes! When we spoke to the staff we got a sorry but still... More

Went for breakfast. Cooked mushrooms, but stone cold, so must have forgotton to reheat them - does not inspire confidence. Poor example of a cooked breakfast. Edible but forgettable. Place also looked a bit unkept with flies everywhere. Staff did not seem exactly bothered.

Popped in for a drink. A nice place to chill and sit outside and watch the world go by. Perfect after a day of walking and sight seeing.

If you like a view then this is fine, if however you want tasty food, good service and caring front of house then avoid. Waiting staff quite welcoming at first and then seemed to lose the plot and not be sure who to serve next. One table, who had obviously arrived some time before us as they had drinks, had... More

My husband and I ate at Off the Beach yesterday evening with our friends from London. I am coeliac and also dairy intolerant and the chef at the cafe was so attentive in helping me choose something from the menu that would be ok for me to eat. She said she could alter some of the dishes off the menu... More
