You're probably paying for their expensive seaside rent and the view of the bay more than the food. I came here a couple times for a business lunch and I had the crispy pork on rice. They can't even make the rice properly, it tastes...More

Great setting, lovely views, service outstanding, food for the "normal person great but after giving them 2 weeks notice the the gluten free food was shocking, No dainty morsels of sweet and savoury but almost dagwood sandwiches with minimum filling and a crustini. Never again....More
