Staff were friendly and quick. We ordered fish and chips really good, fresh fish and good batter. Chunky chips and good value.

The menu boards outside tempted us to try this cafe and we were not disappointed. Whitebait was crisp and beautifully presented with a really fresh salad, and the pasta - a special for the day - was really tasty and served as a generous portion. Service was attentive and friendly. We would certainly return.

We liked the look of the menu board outside but it was strange getting into the restaurant past the Tourist Information and RNLI shop.We were greeted by a friendly waitress and our order was taken and we were served quite quickly. My husband had nice fish and chips which wasn't at all greasy but nice and crispy and salad which... More

4 of us decided to eat here as tables outside and the rest of the places were packed. We ordered our fish and chips, and collected our cutlery. While we was doing this we see the guy hiding the frozen fish and chips. We did want some nice home made chips and fresh fish but as we had already paid... More

Over priced horrendous food. Very very disappointed. Staff was unwelcoming. They charged £2.20 for a small glass of oj. Sausage was re heated as was hash browns. Avoid avoid

Don't be fooled by the fact that there are two gift shops in the front. There's a great little cafe in the back that does a good selection of light bites: panninis, jacket potatoes and sandwiches. They also do fab Turkish coffee, which is one of the main reasons we keep going back! Great for a light bite sitting in... More

The ham was cheap packet ham and was warm with sweat bubbles and brown down the middle. I'm sure if eaten this would have made us ill . eggs had big pockets... More

Ten of us arrived without prior warning for lunch and found the staff very accommodating. Naturally, we waited a little longer for our lunch - many different dishes all freshly prepared but were impressed with staff and the food. We returned later for tea and cake and were equally satisfied.

Only wanted a snack and there was plenty of choice here; we chose a mezze to share between two of us and it was very good. Good, friendly service.
