If you fancy fish and chips, or anything else from the menu and you want to sit somewhere comfortable watching the water then this is the place. Friendly service, good quality food and a great view what more could you ask!

Sat early for dinner the other night watching sun setting over boats and a seal amusing itself in the sea under our table on the deck. Crayfish were on special offer and a good plate was washed down with cold beer. Holiday informal dining does not get a whole lot better than this!

Don't know what's happened but the magic has waned here at one of our all time favourite places! The views are still great and the food is OK, but the atmosphere has sunk without trace. Where is Gandolf and the rest of the old crew....not as it was and many better places to eat in the republic.
