Good location in the summer on breakwater beach, also good in the autumn/winter months if you're out walking and nip in for a traditional breakfast or maybe hot drinks and a snack. Love sitting outside upstairs in the summer enjoying a salad, drinks and dessert. Not a restaurant I'd necessarily book for a posh special occasion but it is relaxed... More

Even without the winter offer the breakfast would still have been excellent value for money. Friendly staff and well cooked food plus a wonderful view made for a most enjoyable meal. Highly recommended.

Popped in on spec during a walk around the harbour. Fried breakfast was perfect. I'd like to go there for lunch or dinner but I like a drink with my food and they only have Bays beer which, in my opinion, is just plain horrible. Apart from that, it's a lovely place, friendly staff, super views and reasonable value for... More

Stopped here while bird watching from the breakwater. Tables on the upper floor give very good views of the bay. Lots of choice for a perfect breakfast with good tasting coffee. They also have an evening menu and a licence to serve alcohol. I will be back for sure.

We reserved a table for dinner for New Years Eve, and for breakfast on New Years Day, food was excellent, good portions and good value, and the service was excellent, so friendly, even looked after our belongings when we went in the sea on New Years Day. I have previously had lunch, dinner or just a cream tea on the... More

Have eaten here twice and xould not fault the food. Have had an evening meal and now afternoon sandwiches, both of which were extremely tasty. The service was very polite and friendly. Only down point is that they allow dogs, so we had to endure a whining dog all through our meal. Would be better if they allow dogs in... More
