What a difference a change of staff makes! This inn, with its superb views from its terrace, has a new fish menu which is hard to beat. Fresh fish and shellfish, cooked to perfection, excellent chips, friendly service and speedy too. Brilliant!

This is a nice friendly place for lunch. Nice atmosphere. The menu is fairly limited but the food is fresh and appetising. We can lunch in the conservatory with a nice view over the water.

Not sure to be honest but what I can tell you that this place is always very busy. We haven't eaten there yet but we intend too soon.
