On our recent stay we had lunch here a couple of times after being at the beach for the morning. Great location next to the beach entrance and the meals were good. Would definitely recommend the fish tacos!

The new menu has started at the Surf Club and it’s awesome, best value and most versatile breakfast in town. This will be my go to for the season.

There is a good kids menu and great fenced playground. You can see the beach through the trees. The meal portions are large and the quality is “good pub” level. The staff are friendly and quick. Would go again for sure.

Visited twice in one week - salmon and green paw paw salad and steak and fish & chips all very good - fresh, well cooked with lots of flavour. Wine by the glass well priced. Great relaxed atmosphere, perfect for families.
