Every time we visit the isle, the first place we head to is Besty and spinkys for breakfast. The food is cooked to perfection, the staff are friendly, the prices are extremely competitive. The atmosphere is great. This is one place not to miss.

Came here with my husband for lunch and it was great. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The food was great and very reasonably priced. There was lots of choice, and portions were big! Lovely beach venue too.

We enjoyed lunch here as the food was a bit different from just sandwiches or everything-with-chips. Very popular with families with young children it has a good spot right next to the paddling pool. Very pleasant service and freshly cooked, piping-hot food.

Whenever we're in town we always head to besty and spinkys for breakfast. It's good value, always hot and they do a lovely vegetarian sausage.

We liked this cafe so much we returned before leaving the island. Great quality food, super friendly staff. The fish finger sandwiches were the best ever. Relaxed atmosphere. We'll be back. Highly recommend.

Tasty Chips and Ice Cream. Lovely service. Could do with umbrellas outside. Inexpensive. Lovely paddling pool outside for kiddies!

Stopped here for dinner after a long journey. Was pleasantly surprised with the food that was served; we had omelettes and a burger. Big portions and lots to choose from. Seating overlooking the sea, helpful and friendly staff too!
