They have a lovely ice cream bar with the most amazing flavours, a must! We also had drinks here which were ok and service very friendly. The men in our group had breakfast here and rated it highly as a good English fry up.

Popped in for a milkshake (ice cream lady In corner mixed me one) and a Diet Coke. Very nice and good price. Looks like a good place to go for English food if you can't hold out whilst on holiday!

Found this gem of a restaurant/ bar , staff extremely helpful and friendly. Sunday dinner was spot on, especially the mash. There is a swimming pool at the rear for customers to use, lifeguard on duty at all times. Situated near the bus terminus
