A little stall on the seafront with a few tables on the beach but with the most wonderful looking seafood. We had oysters which were delicious and lots of choice of vinegar and sauces to choose from. Would definitely go back

Description
We are back & going strong already , with reviews flowing. Its the 2017 season & we have added a new product again this year. Come on down to try our excellent fresh filled bread rolls. Favourites, yes we have 2 already: Fresh local lobster with mayo, gherkin with a dusting of cayenne pepper, WOW. Our very own Crab mayo bread roll & a fresh prawn topping is also at the top of the charts. We have also added more tables on the beach. Come on down , grab yourself some delicious shellfish & relax overlooking the big blue sea...
