Lovely olde world cafe very close to the sea front. Dogs allowed. Great menu selection with lots of fresh crab and sea bass. Helpful friendly staff. Look at these scones. Hot and jammy and creamy. Fabulous.

Got in just before lunch so we were 'allowed' to order just drinks. People coming in afterwards were turned away because they weren't having lunch and not very politely either. We had two coffees - a latte and cappuccino. Both awful - clearly from an...More
