I've been here a few times but won't be back. The rude lady who runs this establishment is usually to be seen sat outside smoking & drinking her profits.

I walked in and was ignored for minutes whilst 3 members of staff had a laugh in the kitchen. Was finally served by a very drunk lady with a mouthful of food, not confidence inspiring!

While the service was good, the owner very amenable and chatty, and the decor nice, the food is overpriced. £6.95 for a jacket potato? Come on. i'd expect caviar with it at that ptice! The ciabatta and toasted sarnies weren't exactly cheap, either.

I had the unfortunate luck of chosing it for a quick coffee break, and as it turned out made the mistake of thinking I was welcome... More

recently had a make over but still run by the same lady who isn't very cheerful or welcoming . Poor wine sold at top prices.

My father and I spent 2 weeks in Frinton on Sea June 2014. On holidays from Canada. We had wine and sandwiches several times. The food was always fresh and the staff very friendly and extremely helpful. We would definitely return. Donna and Pat
