Just been in for two coffees, having seen the advert . Said no service outside, so we said we'd have takeaway cups or wait for them, and use outdoor seating. Apparently no outdoor tables and chairs are usable by non residents- only a bench. Poor...More

We had a chilli jacket potato, which was a generous size complete with salad. We sat outside on the comfortable wooden chairs to a wooden table to enjoy the view over Freshwater Bay. I had a latte and it was very good too.

What took us to the Dandelion was, to be honest, its position overlooking Freshwater Bay. But we were pleasantly surprised - it's menu at lunchtime offered more than just a sandwich, the food was tasty and it was licensed. What's more the service was very...More
