Went here tonight as i used to go as a kid. Its a shame how far the place has fallen. Frozen burger and chips was not what i had in mind. The memories i had are well and truly gone!

Popped here for lunch with my parents and my two little ones - everybody had a great lunch. Kids burger and sandwich went down well and my parents chicken curry was excellent. Will definitely be back - an unexpected gem

What a we gem! Head up stairs for a wonderful view of the sea. Spacious and good food! Very reasonable. We had a good lunch and tea for £15. For two people that was great! Nice place to relax watching the waves. A pleasant surprise!
