We have visited here many times. Thornton is very helpful and knowledgable about the area. Beautiful views. My husband loves all the different beers they sell and especially the Dark Fix. Can't wait to go back there next time we are over. Also they sell pots of tea with tea leaves and tea strained.

Stopped off for a break on the way up the hill from the beach and found this little Cafe bar with a spectacular view off the lovely veranda. The Welsh owner, Thornton, is a great bloke. Very knowledgeable, helpful and a linguist too!

Beautiful little cafe bar half way up the main road from Lourdas Beach - lovely Thornton (Welsh ex-pat) serves up exclusive ales/lager and tea and coffee, also he's very informative about the village and it's past. This place is tiny but gives fantastic views - well worth a visit for a pit stop up and down the steep hill! Highly recommend this place.

What a great find, the views are stunning and the hospitality second to none. Thornton is a lovely, interesting man. We were lucky enough to be sheltering there watching a fantastic storm while Thornton continued to provide drinks through the window.
