The staff are always so friendly and the food is perfect! Really recommend the sausage and onion ciabatta baguette, it’s divine. Super fast for takeaways too.

Friendly pleasant staff, nice tables outside overlooking the lovely beach. Thought fish and chips by the sea yum, waited 20 mins and overcooked hard dark brown batter, just like cheap frozen fish from supermarket. Not very nice at all. Really need to invest a little...More

Great Breakfast and a lovely setting on the beach. Breakfast came out quite quick but lovely and fresh. Bacon was banging. Nice touch with toast and marmalade to finish.
