“Tasty Fish and chips”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Don't be deceived by the surrounding ice cream shops and kiss me quick souvenir stalls this cafe is a gem!
We arrived late afternoon looking for a good substantial hot meal and was served a good substantial hot meal, the cafe was busy but staff had time for all and were very quick in serving
Food was excellent - Fish and chip are sublime when cooked properly. Chips were crispy and fluffy in the middle and the fish was fresh and coated with just the right amount of batter to keep the fish moist

“Friendly family atmosphere”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Had previously imagined this to be a tourist trap, but the food was tasty and the staff very friendly. A bit overpriced but to be expected given location - lovely sunny outside area or cosy beamed inside both very atmospheric.

“Average cream tea”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Was really looking forward to a cream tea here, it was ok not great which was a disappointment. Staff very friendly though and a lovely old building. Tea was served in a leaky metal tea pot of the 1970s variety. My scones were very brown, should have sent them back in hindsight. Lots of cream & jam. So ok, but would go somewhere else next time.
