Small shack on the beach. Great atmosphere and fantastic food overlooking the sea. Had the fish and chips for two £13.00. Batter was really light. Recommended

great place overlooking the sea. Was a pit stop on our walk and we did not want to leave. Looks nothing special from the beach but its is lovely. Friendly and good service and well stocked bar. Lovely glass of Rose.

Great crab and avocado stack with lovely crusty granary bread, made even better with a glass of Brooklyn beer and rose wine. Our young children were very happy with their food too, and the location.

Thank you for your review. I don't know whether by "odd" you are suggesting that I was fabricating the whole thing?! We were alerted to the circulation of fake £50 notes by a friend who was unfortunate enough to have been given one at his...More

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed it all. Sorry about "the look", purely unintentional I assure you!! Good job we could redeem ourselves by having coconut milk then!! See you again hopefully.
