Bought a take away last week, was determined not to return after my last very poor experience. Glad I did give it another chance the food was very fresh and tasty, everything it should be.

Lovely people working, very attentive. The food was amazing. Definitely will be back. 100% on everything, and the views over the beach is brilliant

This restaurant, located on Walney Island was special for its location and architecture. It is rather out-of-the-way. We found it worth the drive from Barrow.

Our favourite restaurant for family celebrations. Plenty of choice to suit all tastes. It provides many courses if desired-soup, starters, crispy duck pancakes, main meals, fruit and banana fritters. The house wine was reasonable and very pleasant. The restaurant provides lovely views of the sea.

I went with my grandparents and a wonderful time. The staff were really friendly and looked after my grandparents. The food was hot and delicious and the banana fritter to end was great.
