We only ate in here once during our stay but the food was lovely and the selection of food and deserts were great.

Excellent food and value for money. Nice venue to eat out. smart casual dress. Pleasant staff. On the sea front. Did not wait long for food after ordering. Bistro type venue. Chips could be better.

We notice that this place done Sunday roast carvery. We booked as it was advised to do so. Parking was a problem as all the restaurants along the esplanade got very busy, my partner had to drop me and the family off as i am disabled and he drove round several times looking for a space to park. That was not the fault of the restaurant though. I went to the till and put the order in for our table. We were given cards to take up to the servery, kids, medium or large. I had medium and the men had large, this was for the meat portions, although i didnt notice much difference in sizes, the meat was very generous portions even the children meals. The choice was roast beef, turkey and pulled pork. The server even kept well done bits of meat to one side for people like me that prefer meat well done. Although busy the atmosphere was very calm. Shame we was only there for one sunday.

I love this place, iv been going here every year for that last 5 years. It has a really lovely sea side feeling about it with out being tacky. The staff are really polite and human, and the food is of a high quality. My mother needs a coeliac menu that is massive choice, she was impressed, the kids menu is very good and seems quite fresh. Very clean and modern with a great view of the sea. Highly recommended

Called in and would have dined however they were really busy and the service was so slow and disjointed it made it even worse.

People were queuing at the bar to get served and the staff were working with the eyes down so didnt have a clue who was waiting and who was first. "Whos next" kept being bellowed and people clearly were being missed. A little training with Head Up barmen could have easily fixed this.

Also the bar was slowed as they had to keep making drinks for diners as a priority.. Get more staff would fix that one also.

Must try again as the food looked good so a very neutral response.
