What a fabulous setting, friendly atmosphere and appeared full of locals ( always a good sign of a good spot) . Food was tasty. Loved the picnic baskets on the outside table. Very quirky and would definitely return.

Very atmospheric and tasteful renovation of the original Yarmouth railway station. Sadly no lever frame in the signalbox to keep an ex signalman happy, but other than that I can't fault the place. The food is good, and the view serene and relaxing. Will definitely...More
