Decided to go here on Saturday night the place was not full, food was quite good but was let down by the supermarket type chips and onion rings, I can definitely recommend the cocktails which were excellent, 7/10 for food 10/10 for drinks and service

Great food and service. Well priced and friendly staff. Lots of work going on around the cliff top so parking could be tricky, we'll worth a visit.
