Another trip back to Gylly beach cafe; Sunday night we did the Roast on the Coast where you get a full Sunday roast, with a drink and live music. The food was excellent and my companions raved about the tender roast beef they had. I...More

The food and service here is excellent, enjoyed this place immensely, very handy as don't always want to go into town. Perfect evening here and everyone welcoming. The best steak I have ever had and the Lemon Posset is to die for

Lovely to be able to sit outside in the warmer weather, the glass shields keep off the wind. The views are great, overlooking Gylly beach so lots of opportunity for people watching. Good choice of food. Only disadvantage is its popularity, so can be difficult...More

We visited the cafe for lunch yesterday and sadly did not get to eat there. The location is great, right on the beach and dogs are allowed on the covered, veranda type area. These were two big plus points for us. We walked our dogs...More

We certainly do every Sunday between 6-9pm with our roast on the coast deal. Roast + a drink (pint or glass of wine) £10! We don't take any reserve bookings so just head down and free live music from 730 too! Enjoy x
