Had a lovely meal here today. They welcome well behaved dogs so we could relax with our pooch and enjoy our meal after our beach walk. We had no room for one of their fantastic puddings so they happily put 2 in a takeaway container...More

Visited restaurant after a long walk. Very disappointed as the view over bay is amazing. Toilets were filthy, no soap and hand drier was not working. Restaurant also allows dogs which is unhygienic while eating food. Will not visit again.

great wholesome food and service; the establishment itself is a beach cafe but so popular - the sweets are spectacular but the savoury stuff - which i prefer - is great also; closes at 5pm which is a shame on lovely days
