Great food, reasonable prices and friendly service. The pizza is lovely, fresh from the wood burning oven and the specials are great too. Get there early to guarantee a table.

“Best Mussels Ever”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

Found this place completely by accident. We had mussels and the fish and chorizo broth. Both were delicious but the mussels were particularly good. The staff, although busy were friendly and attentive. We'll definitely be back.

“Value?”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

We had fish & chips from a kiosk for less than £5. Delicious! Visited the Watch House the following day and had fish (hake) and chips. Cost over £13. Chips hard, fish dry. I rest my case!

“Limited choice good food”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

The menu is very limited, pizza, fish of the day, sausage or ham. However the staff a every friendly, helpful and obliging. The food itself was cooked ok, the fish slightly overdone but still had substance. Portion size was good and chips cooked well. Price is comparable for the area and ambience as expected for busy seaside location.
