Our first visit. Went for Sunday carvery lunch. A lovely, simple, home made roast with trimmings for £7.95. The regular menu was also available so the kitchen must have been kept very busy as lots of different dishes were coming past us! All good quality food at realistic prices. Desserts for around £4, so a bit dearer than average for a "cafe" - but large portions and served with custard, cream or ice-cream. "Proper" coffee and a wide selection of soft drinks including milk shakes. Lovely atmosphere, quite a small cafe but no feeling of being crowded in - quietly buzzing, happy staff, happy customers. Comfy leather-type chairs indoors, modern garden seating in the courtyard behind (no sea views at the back but for views sit at their pavement cafe at the front.) No drinks licence but you are welcome to bring your own bottle of wine. Glasses are provided with no corkage charged. We have booked a bigger table for a family treat in a couple of weeks time - looking forward to it.

Since this restaurant was taken over last year the quality has improved and we use it regularly. Comments from other users have been taken on board by the owners and in particular the cost of a pot of tea-for-two reduced. The prices are fair, the place is clean and tidy, the food and drink excellent (all cooked fresh) and we recommend The Custom House for coffee or for eating.

We have visited on four occassions, one occassion we wait nearly an hour for our food but had an appointment so had to cancel and ask for our money back as they had forgotten our order. The waitress begged us to stay and said our food would be ready in five minutes, which it was. On all four occassions we visited this resaurant when paying the bill they had no change and asked whether they could "owe us" the change. Whilst this only totals £1.70 we feel that this is unacceptable and have never been back.
We have also heard from friends and family who have visited where the same thing has happened regarding ttheir change.
