Didn't realise this had changed so glad we passed it. Takeaway on the beach to cater for everyone, chilli/curry/meatballs and sundaes. Really friendly service. Everyone enjoyed it, will definitely be back.

Poor quality food, 'Meat Platter" consisted of frozen potato wedges, accompanied by shop bought (?) meat balls & sauces straight from a jar, miniscule undressed salad without tomatoes & no provision of oil or vinegar.. Nothing tasted homemade, all we heard whilst there was the...More
