Reasonable prices and food. We had some cake and teas. It's basically a good cafe. The views are really good through the panoramic windows. Great place to have lunch and sit out later on the benches.

Spent an enjoyable hour here looking at the view while having morning coffee, reading the information and having a wander around outside taking photos in the rain. I imagine in summer it must be a spectacular place to be. Highly recommended.

The waves were rough, the tidal race was fast. The gulls battled to stay still against the wind. Majestic forces of nature. Yes.
