We had dinner here and although this appears to be a cafe/restaurant from the outside, the meal was delightful. We particular recommend the lamb tagine

I will start by saying we cannot comment on the food itself, as we didn't get anywhere near tasting it. The service was non existent! We arrived at the bistro around 7 pm and stood for 7 - 8 minutes in the entrance waiting for someone to appear to show us to a table. We left, still not having seen... More

Mini cream tea was a delight. Lovely fresh scones, lots of jam and plenty of clotted cream. Made to feel welcome, well worth a visit. While not tried as yet menu appeared to have a good choice. Will visit again.

It was very busy so a little wait which was fine. The food was great and really tasty. It did how ever take a long time to get our bill when we asked for it and bank card in hand ready. Sadly they had to turn a customer away. The manager was very friendly it was a shame the young... More

Nice homely restaurant, felt very relaxed and at ease here, no pressure to order quickly and service was friendly and polite. Food was pretty good, lots of fresh fish on the menu with other meat options. Everyone enjoyed their dinner, would recommend but food is typically of a standard that can be cooked at home.

The food was good value for money. We ordered panini and jacket potatoes both of which we thoroughly enjoyed.They also serve evening meals... More

We stopped off for a bite to eat after walking along the beach. Hoping to have a quick snack and to avoid the rain (and having no great expectations of the quiet unassuming hideaway). The staff were very welcoming and our order was taken very quickly. I had the leek/potato/mushroom pie, and my wife had liver & bacon as she... More
