Place caught our eye. Menu looked OK so we stopped for a quick lunch. What a lovely meal. Staff/owners were very welcoming and the food was excellent. Almost impossible to get poor oysters on the island but these were exceptionally good. Nice little touch, they put the top she'll over the oyster for serving. Delicious local bread with it. We had a starter sea food salad as the main and it was a large portion with loads of shell fish and a slice of smoked cod or haddock and a gorgeous creamy home made Mayo sauce. Lovely local wine. Even the coffee was good. Price was very low for the quality.
Thoroughly recommend this place and it is open every day all year. The harbour and beach is lovely too for a pre or post lunch wander.
Watching other diners the other orders looked very good too.

Great little discovery as we were exploring the Island - food was perfect for adults and kids and lovely to chat with the owner who knows our part of England very well!
