Best on the back beach

small and cosy.. the food was good as touted on my friend's birthday supper but a tad pricey.. two mains and a bottle of white set us back £60+.. it was good, but this is small town.. not the city.. hence 4 stars...I guess the lack of real competition is the reason.. but def a good place to eat... read more

This was the second time i had visited and it definately did not disappoint. We dined as a family and enjoyed the crab sharing platter, mussels, crab sandwiches and a sharing starter platter x2. There are big portions and i would recommend the crab platter to be shared by half the amount of people expecting to eat. 1x crab will... More

We booked a party of 5 for lunch mid week. Agreed a late seating of 1430 as suggested by the person taking the booking.

Managed to get in for lunch on Saturday without booking, I think this is generally unlikely. Greeted by friendly knowledgeable staff taken through menu and specials etc, little bit of background to the business etc. Ordered Crab and Lobster claws, just fantastic, wonderful lunch experience, these people catch the most enormous crabs!!. Then serve them just right. Fruit de mer... More
