We wandered into restaurant for lunch on our first weekend of holiday. Quiet restaurant with friendly service and good food at a reasonable price and overlooking the harbour.

We visited here on the penultimate evening of our holiday, and were soon kicking ourselves for not having eaten here before.

Good bit of grub, needed to fill up after a days diving and this hit the spot. Sea food was all good and fresh, recommend fish platter or the fish and chips.

A nice relaxing and friendly atmosphere, visited during the Herron Queen celebrations and enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine with my son in law...and though we were drinking the same Lager ( Carling..pints ) was disappointed to discover I had been charged 20p per pint more than my son in law....all afternoon (same member of staff. ) strangers beware.
