Called in during February half term, had the special fish and chips. Fish was ok but chips were disgusting, inedible, think they had been refried numerous times. Mushy peas cold and bread of the cheapest variety.

Beautiful fish and chips. Crisp batter and a decent size fish for a regular. Had cheesy garlic bread which came with a nice salad garnish and it wasn't oily either. Chips nice and crisp. The waitress was fine and pleasant. Fab view of the bay and new rnli building. Great value for money.

Called in on a cold winter day for a warm drink. My hot chocolate (which was luke warm at best, and powdery) arrived smothered in fake, out of a can, whipped cream. In fact 1/3 of the contents were this plastic monstrosity. Having scraped the gloop off, I find it was hiding a dirty disgusting chipped cup. So having paid... More
