A great restaurant with some outside tables. Good quick service from friendly staff. Beach walk afterwards or nature reserve across the road with excellent interpretative centre

We had a quick pit stop here. We chose something on the day's menu. We didn't have to wait for long and the food was pretty good. The place was beautiful and there was also a nice terrace.

Hello, My name is James and I am 15 years old and am currently at Les Quennevais school and am taking food GCSE. I am interested in a Weekend jobs and wondered if you had a space. I love spending time in the kitchen and talking to people. I am a member of St John Ambulance and also fire and rescue cadets. I would love to work in a great establishment like your and was just curious if you had a job available. Thank you. James
