“Tony Child”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

For the 2nd year running, we have enjoyed the "Dribble Grub" in the late afternoon in a great atmosphere as the October sun sinks over the beach and Garrison headland. We only have tapas type snacks, with a glass of wine or two, but it leaves you relaxed, and ready to make the big decisions which need answering "where are we going this evening". Summary, good food, reasonable prices, great views.

“fabulous food glacially slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Granted we are approaching the end of the season but a 90 minute wait for a rare steak just is not acceptable.

“Tapas and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Still a very good place even just for morning coffee (lovely position overlooking Porthcressa Beach). The evening menu is good and the food always freshly prepared and good value.
Look out for live music nights
