Location and contact

We are an independently owned multi award-winning restaurant based opposite the train station, just down from the Jubilee Clock along the seafront. We have disabled access into the restaurant and are child and dog friendly. Our ethos is to use as many locally sourced ingredients as possible to create delicious home made, chargrilled burgers in a relaxed atmosphere coupled with excellent customer service. New for Summer 2018 is Snitches, our 9-hole Indoor Crazy Golf Course, located on the first floor of the restaurant so our customers are able to enjoy a round either before or after their burger! We are fully licensed and have a full bar serving a wide range of wines, draught local ales, ciders,
