Looks like it should be very good. Service, location and fantastic views all suggest this should be somewhere special. Unfortunately the food failed to live up to expectation. My wife had soup of the day which she described as ok. I had fish of the day, cod chips and home made mushy peas. At £14 I was expecting something very special. The fish was smaller than anything my local chippy at home would serve, the large portion of chips were frozen french fries with a tablespoon portion size serving of mushy peas. Frankly it was daylight robbery. Go to the cafe next door and you won't be disappointed.

Great steaks, superb outlook, fabulous way to finish a busy day by the sea. They allowed us to bring our dog onto the outdoor terrace. Service was good.

Superb views across to Padstow , this is the perfect place to have breakfast while waiting to go to Padstow on the ferry. Sitting on the veranda watching the world go by while enjoying scrambled eggs on toast with bacon, together with orange juice finished off with a strong cup of coffee. Well cooked good service. No need to say any more, please give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Yet another outstanding visit with friends. The meals were faultless in every respect, delicious, beautifully presented. Excellent service as always. Thank you to James and his team!

We booked a party of 17 & when we arrived the staff seemed not to know we were coming or that keen to seat us.

The poor service extended into a longer than acceptable wait for drinks orders to be taken / menus to be provided / orders to be taken & bread to be brought to the table.

The food, when it arrived was ok, not really worth the £££.

Starters were ok, mains a disappointment, batter on the fish & chops was too thick & heavy and so was left.

The trio of fish left those who ordered it asking what was different as it appeared to be three small pieces of the same fish, cooked in the same way.

In summary, nice location, good view but not really worth the ferry ride over from Padstow.
