Had lunch here. Really good quality and good value. Great views of coastlibe. Very good wait staff who apologised for a slight delay in service as a coach tour came in. Impressed. Recommend.

“Cozy place definitely worth stopping at.”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

The fish and chips is huge and the Guinness pie is delicious. In nice weather I'm sure it would be great to sit outside with the beautiful view.

“mediocre food at extravagant prices”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

stopped here as the location looked promising and the choice had been limited nearby. waitress was friendly and professional however the food didn`t match the view. another restaurant which believes that children should live on chips and deep fried food.very ordinary meal for the price but the devil was in the detail when we were charged £2.75 for a dash of cordial into our water jug. the lady accepting the money was unmoved/ downright rude when I questioned this.

Reviewed September 26, 2012

We were staying nearby on holiday with our dog and just called in one lovely sunny evening.The staff were really helpful,we went in,ordered and paid in advance then sat outside in the sun at a sheltered table . We were able to have our dog sit with us and the service was great. The food was delicious ,portions were big ,we could have ordered less!!.Would recommend this to any-one passing,it was great
