Very nice location right overlooking the beach. Nice modern rustic deal. Good service and excellent food. More upmarket than most beachfront venues. It was a bit noisy but there was quite few women in there that like to talk a lot. Which is often the...More

What a delight right on the sea front. Loads of parking outside but you do have to pay, so make sure you have small change. You can't pre book but that's not an issue as your contact number is taken and you can go for...More

We’ve eaten here quite a few times and always enjoyed it so while out on a walk along the seafront yesterday we decided to see if they had a table available. They took our phone number and estimated a 10 mins wait. So ten minutes...More

Slightly odd but wonderful. Heinz Beans on Toast on the menu alongside very good gastro pub type food so something for everyone. Is this what you get if you do a serious modern upgrade on a traditional greasy spoon. Keeping the no frills, traditional breakfast...More

I don't think you can book, we were told that if there aren't any tables available they put your name on a list and have to wait until a table becomes available.
