Enjoyed a meal of Haddock and Chips along with beer. It was plentiful and fresh, very tasty. Would've liked a wider choice of beer. The staff were very welcoming and looked after us well. Seated next to the window and enjoyed the sea view and illuminations too. Very clean. External decking will be great for the warmer months. Recommend. And...
