We are here a couple of times. Great location just by the sea. The food was great and reasonable prices. The only down side because there was 7 of us the service was slightly slow. But would recommend.

Food was OK, nothing more. Beer average price (just under £1 for a Julbrew) but cocktails seemed relatively expensive. Waiting staff seemed a bit offhand, which I suppose is better than unwanted attention! They made a mistake in our bill too. It was pretty busy...More
