The staff were so helpful and kind, providing a highchair for the wee one without being asked. The food was generous, tasty and very reasonably priced. My daughter and I both had Thai flavoured starters...

We came here recently for afternoon tea. The dining room was large, clean, tidy and had a pleasant view towards the sea. The courteous staff, who were helpful and friendly, served us a lovely afternoon tea with lots of sandwiches, cakes and scones. I highly recommend a visit.
