It is a shame that the previous people who ran it could not get an extension of the lease, however the friends of the pool have taken over . Everyone is trying hard to make it successful but I still prefer the previous menus.

We have often eaten at this delightful little restaurant and never been disappointed until now when I hear it's now closed down. Don't understand quite why but have heard through the grape vine that the council can't make up their minds about its future!! Typical.More

Friendly atmosphere and staff and right on the seafront, with a choice of very locally sourced fish medley you just had to have it! and we were not disappointed.
