We called in here for lunch and it was amazing. We did ask if they opened evenings but alas in the winter they only open during the day. Lovely location and lovely food.

We ate at 3.30pm on Sunday when the rush had died down. Fabulous fish and chips and Seafood Casserole. No need to go on the boat trip to see the dolphins we had our own show! Lovely friendly staff, highly recommend.
