Back again on the Island and visited 3 times during a two week holiday. Breakfast was served, as ever with a smile and good food. Some new staff from last year, but still very well trained, helpful and polite.

Exceptionally busy on the Sunday morning, and service was prompt and efficient. Newspapers of course, wherever you visit, are a bonus to read, and it certainly adds to the atmosphere of the place to sit and watch the world go by, enjoying a breakfast, cooked and presented so well on the plate.

Thanks again, roll on September 2013. Keep up the excellent standards!

Booked a table for 4 people at 6 pm Friday night. Arrived at 5.45 pm to be meet with a notice
on the bar 'sorry food service stopped' . We were told the staff had been told there were ' no bookings that night'. On inspection our booking was in the diary, gosh. Staff then said they could
feed us. But who wants to sit in an empty room? We left. 6 others came in after us and we later saw them eating fish and chips. I sent 2 e mails on Sunday and Tuesday with no response.
Do these people want a business?

We came here for breakfast as we arrived too early for our accommodation.

We wouldn't go back or recommend it to anyone. Food was ok. We had a full English which was as you expect. Nothing special. Service was very friendly.

The whole place was filthy, tables covered in crusty old food, the high chair for my son was so dirty it took me ten minutes to clean with wipes before I could put him in it. Toilets just as bad, stink and filthy.

Such a Shame as a lovely place in a great setting I can imagine it gets really busy in the day, for it to be so dirty at 9am when there was only us and another table in use was a real shame.

One to avoid unless starving in my opinion!
