We stayed at a cottage around the corner and came twice for dinner. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and the menu changes which means you won’t get bored. Highly recommend this place and will return if ever back this way.

Is there a children’s menu?
Yes, we do have a children's menu, although not for Sunday lunch when we just offer smaller portion sizes of the grown ups' Sunday lunch. Absolutely happy to have children here and it's a rare lunch or supper (in school holidays of at weekends) when we don't see them.

"We stayed in room 1, from which you could see the coastline. Small, perfectly functional and immaculately clean"
"Our friends were staying at the place not us. Take food !"
"Ask for the largest room available"
"Try and book a standard double if you can as price seems more in line with quality offered."
