I was working at the Mary Rose Exhibition for a couple of days and needed somewhere nearby for brekkie and I discovered this little gem. Hearty breakfasts, hugely dated interior, fine views across to IN A Warrior and cheap as chips. But the best part...More

Lovely to sit in the sun in this location. Unfortunately they had run out of Brie so that was replaced with cheddar in the panini and they were not melted just the bun was warmed. The gentleman working there was very friendly and helpful. Just...More

Nicely cooked breakfast, reasonable price for the area - directly opposite the entrance to the Historic Dockyard. More toast than we could eat! Family run friendly service. There is no sign on the front but it is next to the Ship Anson.
