Lunch with friends in a great little cafe where the food and service is really good. Nice to look out over the beach and take a wander over there afterwards too.

Just loved this place to relax and hang out for hours. After a lovely walk on the beach, this is an excellent place to have a few drinks and some nice food. And the staff are just the best! When the taxi took too much time to collect me, one of the lovely ladies decided to take me up to... More

This cafe and bar is nice, friendly service, helpful staff, the sausages and mash very good, beer is cold and plenty to chose from. The prices are standard, plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces to sit.

I don't know what's happened but food was appalling. have tried twice but still not happy. I believe it's over priced and rather fussy compared to earlier on in the year. Don't think I'll be going back until I hear it's changed. Also staff were disinterested.
