We have been to this restaurant a few times and each time we have had a great experience. The food is excellent and the entertainment outstanding. Family run business and they bend over backwards to make sure that you enjoy yourself and have fun

We couldn’t understand why this place wasn’t heaving on such a sunny day. Just a short stroll from the beachfront and tankerton, with sea views, it’s a secret gem. Special mention should be made to Chelsea and Kendhal who were lovely and very friendly. Made...More

The place doesn’t live up to its 4,5 star rating. We went there for family lunch on Sunday. Food is below average, though prices do not reflect it. Cocktails - horrible! We tried strawberry daiquiri - tasteless dull-coloured substance, and Mojito - no lime, half...More

We popped in for an impromptu lunch. Lovely friendly staff although I would say they should pay attention to the state of the tables as ours really should have been cleaned before we ate. That aside my husband loved the fish & chips raving that...More

Visited with family for an early tea. I've always struggled to work out what the lounge is. Is it a pub? A bar? A cafe? Or restaurant. It doesn't seem to have a specific purpose. Anyway. It's definitely worth a look as the food is...More

Coffee and bacon sandwich I have ever eaten. Staff slack and indifferent. Place smelled of the night after the party. Couldn’t possibly contemplate going there again. Needs a massive kick up the backside to sort this place out.
