Called in here for a slice of cake and a coffee on a windy sunny lunchtime. The service was excellent, and all of the staff were exceptionally friendly. We had the best Carrot Cake ever. Sitting there watching the world go by we watched meals being taken to other diners, and every meal looked fantastic. This cafe is a must... More

This is the place to eat if you are a fish and chips fanatic. I had 3 pieces of cod, all with good chunks of fish and not too much batter (or air ) sitting on a good pile of lovely fat chips in a very large cone-shaped dish, which helped to keep the chips nice and hot. The crab... More

There's no frills here it's all knickers and no fur coat! The food is plentiful and correctly priced. We had the crab pasta which was abundant and extremely tasty. The waiter/ co owner is a really lovely bloke who is clearly loving life. The chef took the time to talk to me and give me some great advise about other... More

Wow! Amazing views, outside seating sheltered. Obviously dogs welcome. Food was delicious, especially the cream teas!! Crab salad was amazing. Catered very well for children. Well worth a visit if in area.

Sadly a very expensive non-descript lemon sole burger with a tiny portion of sweet potato fries that appeared to have been cooked for differing lengths of time. The service was sloppy and poor - a mix up over the correct dishes being brought to the table meant that not all the party were served at the same time. The waiting... More

An enjoyable and tasty lunch in a good atmosphere until two of our plates were cleared away before everyone had finished. Such an unnecessary customer service error, which leaves you feeling rushed to leave your table. Sadly it meant we left with a lower opinion of the place.
