Reviewed 26 August 2013

We had a lovely cuppa here and an extremely large Belgian bun. Very nice staff and a lovely view of the beach.

“Amazing burgers”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

We managed to get in before they closed the doors and had to wait 15 minutes at the counter before we could place our order. We ordered the burgers as there was very little choice left. Although it did take a while, the home-made burgers actually tasted pretty good and the home-made coleslaw was also delicious. We were most content.

“Smile - your customers pay your wages!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

The staff were rude and not interested remotely in what they were doing. It was pouring with rain, there were no queues at the sit down entrance nor the take away window so I tried to order inside to takeaway and she made me take my little girl out in the rain to order through the window. Which just made no sense ( she used the same till ).
She huffed when I asked her if she could wrap the chips. The staff all looked to be in their late teens/ early 20's and just pi**ing around and getting paid for it.
Didn't go back there again!!
