Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We ordered three take away chips at the weekend and sat in the sun to eat them. A huge portion of nice golden brown crispy chips....a touch oily but very tasty indeed.

This place used to be 5*, no idea what’s happened and if it’s changed owners but SERIOUSLY!! Please sort it out. The menu has somehow changed in the past year several times (was on point when breakfast was all day, lots of veggie options) and...then went to 100% chip based. As in everything with chips, on chips, loaded chips etc. Service also SLOW. Anyway, after visiting every month or so for 20 years to this village, it was quite annoying to see them tinkering with something that doesn’t need fixing. It WAS brilliant and we have seen it go from crap, to a bit better to flying under new owners to now…. Going down again. Now - looks like more options are back on the menu (hurrah) BUT it’s not quite right and still too slow. Fish tacos - nice idea if you are going to execute the dishes like blue bar, but if you’re going to have starter sized tacos (this is a joke sorry) and just ram in typical battered fish that’s 3 times the size, then serve in a little bowl..: for £13.50?! That’s unacceptable. It wasn’t very nice and is overpriced. As for the Instagram candy coloured interiors, this won’t mean anything in a year if you keep getting shocking reviews. Please 🙏 try harder to get it back on Track.More

The chips here are swimming in oil and grease and taste of horrible oil. They were so greasy you could squeeze it out with a folk. Service was also awful and slow. After we complained they didn’t charge us for the chips, but nothing else.

Quick service, decent home cooked food and cakes (the portion size of the fish they give you is outstanding!). Can be a bit greasy though so that's the only reason it's 4 stars instead of 5

Came for dinner at 5:30, upon arrival they told us we had to sit at the front of the restaurant because the back was closed already…we didn’t mind but it was strange. Drink/food order took ages just overall the service was very slow. Took 45...minutes for loaded chips & a ‘chicken tortilla bowl’ which in reality is a wrap not wrapped 😂 I should’ve sent it back really! The chicken was so dry, salad was cheap and the wrap was so crispy from being under a lamp I had to leave half of it! For £14 you would expect more! We felt like an inconvenience as they were closing/cleaning up around us. Sorry we didn’t realise you closed at 7:30…maybe if your service was quicker we would’ve been out of your way 😅 all they were bothered about was chatting about who’s going to take more shifts/hours (which none of them seemed keen) odd vibe overall. The actual place is also very dirty, I get it’s by a beach but why are the toilets so rank?More
