Stopped here to get a warming drink during a seafront stroll it wasn’t the drink but the wood burner that did it the most . This is a nice spot to stop, look out over the sea and relax for a few minutes.

We stopped off during an out-of-season Sunday afternoon walk for a cuppa and a scone in this small, warm beach cafe. Service was lovely, tge cuppa and scone were delightful and very reasonably priced, and the menu looked inviting.

We will return for a meal. It's a good excuse to go for a good walk!

We have made several visits to this cafe over the last few months , our most recent just highlights now welcoming they are . After our party was rejected by a nearby cafe we came here rather close to their closing time as we needed to feed the baby’s . People , dogs and baby’s all bundled in for hot drinks and the owners were so helpful and friendly. They even stayed open a little longer for us so we weren’t rushing . Will be returning for sure :-)
