Go here after a walk to Columbine Lighthouse and you will have earned a drink and a meal. Great find on the beach - a "pub/restaurant" which serves a cold drink and simple but good food. Not a gourmet meal but a great beachside lunch or early dinner in a very cool location. Charming staff and well worth the trek... More

Stumbled on this totally mad eccentric pub on the beach. Stunning rustic atmosphere. Some people eat inside boats. It's really just a very large tent on the beach . LM radio old school music playing in the background adding to its eccentricity. Beautiful. So divine. We only had salad which was great and beer and wine ice ice colld. Don't... More

The access road is poorly maintained, it is not well sign-boarded, the parking area has the appearance of a rubbish-tip, the bathroom facilities are poor with crass signage, the furniture looks as though it has seen better days and the restaurant reeks of old oil. Needless to say we chose not to eat here. What a terrible waste of a... More

This bar is very rustic and is partially outdoors, with fish nets and other paraphernalia scattering the ceiling. The view out to the ocean is awesome and adds to the scene. The barman was very friendly, although suspicious of us at first! He lightened up during our stay and came to know what each of us was drinking, so whenever... More

This could have been wonderful ; a restaurant on the beach with a view of the rocks and sea in a wonderful reserve on the idyllic West Coast. However, the music blared forth loud and jarring, In the middle of the day. When I asked politely whether the manager could turn it down one notch I was met with a... More

This is the ultimate beach shack restaurant, tables under a reed roof, giving directly onto a beach on which some of the upturned boats are also dining tables. For atmosphere it couldn't be improved. They also had what seemed like the only crayfish in town, and a good wine list, so we opted to eat here. The food was fine,... More

Good service and beautiful setting but terrible seafood and no crayfish. They did only charge for one platter in the end instead of two.

Based on the reviews we decided that a full meal might be risky. We had drinks and the snoek paté. The drinks arrived very quickly and were nice and cold. The snoek paté was very tasty, could have been a bit bigger. The beach is close for the kids to expend energy and sitting in a beached boat is novel.... More
