A friendly cafe that makes dog owners very welcome. The food is good and the prices very reasonable.

Lovely friendly staff and excellent cod and chips. We sat outside as it was a warm day which made the meal really reasonable. A local at a nearby table assured us it was the best chippy in Southport and I would not disagree.

Had lunch here recently with extended family (9) and found it to be great value for money. The staff were helpful polite and experienced and the toilets spotless. The apple pie was offered but declined as we had eaten enough.

We had chicken and chips which was lovely they made a big fuss of our dog Bailey and gave him a large bowl of water which he enjoyed. The cafe was clean and tidy.
