Quirky and cramped, but excellent food and company in a converted bus by the ferry terminal. We had fish and chips, and soup was highly recommended by other diners. Local folk obviously eat lunch here regularly

There's not much (anything) around here in the early morning waiting for the ferry so this was a welcome treat. It does exactly what you would expect: Bacon rolls, Eggs rolls, coffee, tea etc.
