Read the reviews read the owners story - a new place and it was Ok. Just lacked a bit of finesse. Plenty of staff. Menus on individual clip boards never really impress -the paper a bit shabby.

We had a lovely time there, great staff and awesome food, will recommend it to anyone. The atmosphere was great and the map on the wall got us talking with the table next to us, a very intimate place

Relaxed dining in a rustic seaside setting. Service was good and the menu offered good variety at reasonable prices. My bacon and egg bagel was very tasty and the chips that came with it were up there with the best I have tasted.

A great place to stop by especially on a Sunday afternoon where you can enjoy a wine, a lovely snack and great live background music.
