Good friendly service from attentive waitress.Good fry delivered in short time.Reasonable price.Atmosphere was good and everyone seemed to be in happy mood.Will go back soon. Walkers and bikers seem to frequent this place which says a lot for the food value.

We stopped there for a bite to eat whilst out on a drive along the east coast. We just missed the breakfast, which was served up until 12.30pm and so opted for scrambled egg on toast ... with an additional sausage. We received a quick service, the meal was okay and everything on the menu appeared to be reasonably priced.... More

I thought it was only on Coronation Street that the locals went out for breakfast. I enjoyed their small fry for £3.50 and I was full all day. Not usually a fan of cooked breakfasts, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. There are other things on the menu too and the dining room overlooks the Harbour with some... More

Great to see the bikers using it for their breakfast stop - just adds to the atmosphere. We were just have tea and cake but wish there was room for one of those breakfasts !! Could someone fix that door that bangs when it closes - the one at the bottom of the stairs - so noisy !!

We stopped here for brunch on a public holiday morning. The service was really good and the food was super quick to come out! Excellent value too- we each had a cooked brekky with a cuppa included for between £4-5 each. Very satisfied!

Our group of over twenty was hoping for a refreshing cuppa and a scone as they started out on a tour of the village. The welcome we got- on a Monday morning- was warm and friendly. There was a great aroma of coffee and it was super when we tasted it from generous beakers. The scones were lovely with butter... More
