We visited last night. I chose the fish and chips. It was delicious. The batter was light and the tartare sauce (I'm not normally a fan) really added to the meal. Husband was pleased with his meal. We lingered with a drink enjoying the view...More

The balcony bar located on the harbour front overlooking the seafront provides a fast paced and welcoming environment for people to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner or if you just fancy drink you are always more than welcome.

We specialise in live sport and have numerous screens so you don't miss out on any of the action no matter where you are sat.

We don't take bookings but due to the fast paced nature of the bar we do promise to seat everyone that comes through our door.
