Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We visit Scallops at least 3 times every holiday. We were there until 11th June and still amazed how the owners make profit when we were given two complimentary bottles of wine and 2 complimentary breakfasts each when we had a main meal or one of the set menu's.

We received a warm welcome and enjoyed being able to sit in the lovely new Rose Garden area. Servings were generous and well presented; fish always fresh,
My only criticism is that I feel that the soup is generally disappointing, having tried different ones on 3 separate occasions. I think the 1st course should be eliminated as 3 courses are more than enough for the special menu's.

One couple appeared irritable because they waited too long for their bill. its easier to take note of your table number and pay at the desk inside if you are in a hurry to leave.

The Ladies loo's should be checked more frequently as I felt the level of hygiene could be improved.

Parking is very convenient for people who may have a physical disability or for families with babies in pushchairs.

All in all, this informal restaurant is ideal for couples or families who are budget conscious and want excellent value for money.

Reviewed 16 April 2014

The owners are intent on creating a pleasant area in which to dine and must have spent a considerable sum to set out their new excellent outside Rose Garden area of the restaurant. There are now three clearly defined dining areas. For those residents, like us, who go in the Winter there is a heated indoor area, and, for the smokers and families with noisy children, there is an outside covered area. Now there is a lovely new (April 2014) Rose Garden set out with tables and in which we enjoyed the usual 'free breakfast' which is given on production of a voucher which is given when purchasing a meal. The Voucher is valid for 4 days only for use between 1030 & 1300.

Having ead some previous reviews, I consider critisism of the 'canteen' like ambience of the inside area to be unjustified. Do you really expect "The Ritz" when you are offered a breakfast for £3 ??? The tables are cleaned every time they are reset and breakfast service is prompt. If one orders Sea Bass, then expect top waita reasonable time for a specially prepared dish. All meanus are very good value. (NO! I don't have shares in the place!). Yes, the 'lack of welcome' critisism of the manager is justified but the Manageress compensates for him.

We were very sorry that "Scallops" moved from iot's previous beach-side location in but give them a chance in their new venue.
