This establishment has gone down hill. Watch out for the happy hour as it could make you “unhappy” when you order 2 cocktails for £10 and get charged £14 and after being told that’s only happy hour, which we were 30 minutes into to then...More

We couldn’t understand why this place wasn’t heaving on such a sunny day. Just a short stroll from the beachfront and tankerton, with sea views, it’s a secret gem. Special mention should be made to Chelsea and Kendhal who were lovely and very friendly. Made...More

Visited with family for an early tea. I've always struggled to work out what the lounge is. Is it a pub? A bar? A cafe? Or restaurant. It doesn't seem to have a specific purpose. Anyway. It's definitely worth a look as the food is...More

Coffee and bacon sandwich I have ever eaten. Staff slack and indifferent. Place smelled of the night after the party. Couldn’t possibly contemplate going there again. Needs a massive kick up the backside to sort this place out.
