Fantastic place for lovely meal, great setting. Soup was pretty tasty and their famous "Rockpool Burger" was worth the drive.

Had spotted this Cafe before when get an ice cream. But we wanted more and pleasantly surprised at the quality and fine spread available. We started with soup and sandwich and then tempted by coffee and a tasty sweet slice. Generous portions and great service and full of locals which says it all. Will be back!
