Wow what a surprising find. This place is sort of hidden right on the beach and appears to be an old boat shed that has been converted into a funky welcoming and friendly feeling upstairs restaurant. The views over the bay are unique and inspiring...More

We had dinner with friends who are regular guests here. A magnificent location to have lunch or watch the sunset especially if you can book a window seat. The staff were very friendly and efficient and the food was fine without being exceptional.

Recently had dinner. It's definitely a special night out as it's a bit pricey. The food was absolutely fantastic although one of my party had the chilli linguine and it was way too spicy. The service is great and you're definitely made to feel special....More

I wouldn't bother. The Fish and Chips were dreadful: I had to throw them away. Go on down to Chelsea or up to Brighton - much better quality.
Are dogs allowed outside during the day? I about to move into the area and never knew about this place which looks great! Planning to visit for lunch first. Thank you
