The lunches are good value and theres always plenty of food. The bar is in a fantastic location with amazing views out to sea. They have an outdoor... More

1:30 Saturday afternoon, the raised and main restaurant area was quite busy so my husband and I sat just below it in the main part of the bar. We have eaten here before several times and found it to be quite good. Unfortunately there was football on and some of the language was choice! But to be fair this was... More

At the risk of sounding over-complimentary (people are so fussy nowadays), let me just say that if you want nice service, good food and a warm, pleasant place to eat with an excellent view of the sea, this is the place

Called here for a couple of days ago. Had a steak and garlic prawn combo. Could not fault it. Steak cooked exactly as I asked, pepper sauce was great, plenty of chunky chips and really tasty garlic prawns. Will be back soon!!
