We found the noisy lobster in 2016, recommended by friends. The location is perfect: right on the beach with wonderful views and a great place to start a walk from. The service is slick, friendly and accomodating and backs up a very interesting menu. Yesterday we had breakfast at a window table: vegetarian breakfast was good and the poached eggs... More

This is a truly seaside restaurant you sit and eat about15yards from the beach. The menu is quite good and the service excellent. Parking is alongside the restaurant and a stroll along the front before or after a meal can be pleasant. It is on the expensive side and still has echoes of the seaside "caff" it used to be.hence...

We just like the place it's never let us down. Weather with family or just the two of us. It may take longer for seating with the family but that's to be expected as they are well liked. One of us can't have any dairy and as the food is mostly fresh it was fine.

This beach bar offers a host of opportunities for dinner themed evenings. Be aware that they do not sell alcohol without a restaurant item.

Just the perfect beach cafe! Clean light and airy with jolly staff who know what they are doing and how to look after you. The menu has something for everyone from oysters, melt in the mouth calamari to fish and chips and burgers. Good wine list and fun cocktails. This is the perfect venue for family outings as the kids... More

I live locally and was excited when this place was taken over. It was already a very thriving business and I knew the new owners had plans to extend and open more hours. Initially it was fantastic and they lost no regular customers. However now I find it's too expensive and as they have a captive audience of seaside visitors... More
