We enjoyed this as we had some drinks and starters before the main meal, the weather was perfect and we enjoyed the sun. DON'T COME IF YOU ARE... More

visited on a sunny lunchtime. good menu from soup through salads to seafood dishes. the clams were large and good. Cheap wines and friendly service. Ideal for families as just set back from a glorious beach. will certainly visit again.
