Visited on 2nd March on beautiful sunny and warm afternoon, after a long dog-walk on the beach. Sat on the bar-stools outside and shared a fish-finger sandwich so we could order a large white wine and a pint of beer (we hadn't long since had coffee and cakes somewhere else!) It was really a lovely treat sitting in the sunshine,... More

We had a table booked for 10 people for a Saturday Lunch, which I believe they do not always accept reservations for lunch. The food and service were good, and we had a good view of the sea. I think that the evening menu is different to the lunch menu.

A Saturday evening visit based on a personal recommendation and so pleased we went. The menu may not be vast but there is something for all tastes. The service was top draw. Attentive without being intrusive. A good range of drinks and without any doubt food that was well presented and excellent value for money. Highly recommended for dinner (we... More

A great little restaurant that is always buzzing. An excellent comprehensive menu with daily specials. Good efficient & helpful service & well cooked & presented food. You cannot reserve tables for lunch but can, I believe, for dinner. All in all a great place to stop after a walk along the beach!

Fabulous restaurant. We visited with friends. Greeted by the owner who guided us through the menu and gave us some wine ideas. The noisy lobster seafood platter was divine! As was the Australian Riesling. Scallops with pigs cheeks as a appetiser were also fabulous. Will definitely revisit

My wife and I were visiting for a celebration after her hospital visit. We were quickly seated and our order was taken. The food and drinks were quickly delivered by a very polite and efficient young man. The food was absolutely delicious and worth every penny.

Stopped off for a bit of breakfast after a brisk walk from Steamer Point to Mudeford Quay. Staff were very friendly, prompt and efficient. My scrambled eggs were perfect, on a muffin with a sausage on the side and fresh coffee. The view was also great, but i must admit it makes me chuckle that the fish delivery van needs... More
