DougalM12 said it as it is; and that was four years ago. Nothing seems to have changed. A gloomy interior, poor decoration and furniture, uninviting and uninspiring staff and lots of "do not" signs all represent a wasted opportunity. My wife asked for a regular...More

Great place for snacks and drinks with a super view over Plymouth Sound. The ice creams are to die for so make them a must.

This is a lovely little place and I take issue with those who come on Trip Advisor like one Sam Taylor4 who slated the place about not being able to have wheelchairs inside. The café is tiny. They don't pretend to be a big place...More
