The service was polite and friendly, but the food was a disappointment. The veggie ploughmans came with ham (!) and the chips were cold. The tables were sticky and tacky. The views, though, are amazing!!

We ate a brief snack here and it was fine. I had a cream tea, my wife had a ham and cheese toastie. My milkshake was delicious and very refreshing on a hot Saturday afternoon in July. It's just a café at the entrance to a pier. No airs and graces and not trying to be anything more but was... More

When we arrived, we were greeted in a friendly manor! Unfortunately when at table, it was sticky. Finally when the food arrived, my partner spotted a chip fall off the plate, the waitress put it back on the plate! Disgusting!! The fish was the frozen packet stuff and the chips tasted like they were cheap and fried in old oil,... More

Visited Saturday 30th April 2016. We enjoyed a nice meal of cod and chips and a couple of drinks for 18 quid which was very reasonable. The place has just been refurbished and is a pleasant place to sit. Service was good and we noticed they had a score of 5 for hygiene..... then the manager/owner emptied the outside bins,... More
