Standard and atmosphere still the same after many years - including waiters. Ideal spot for a couple of beers. Food is good value for money and surely a spot to be recommended when compared to the other venues.

The location of this restaurant is hard to beat and there is nothing better than having lunch and a couple beers here on a hot day. The wine list is above average and includes a nice variety. There are also a good few choices of draft on tap, which is always a winner. The menu is pretty expansive and should... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere of this restaurant. Good quality for money. Gently staff. Nothing to complain about in this super location at the sea front.

Ordered a seafood platter for two - was very fresh and wholesome. Drinks took slightly long to arrive but service was good overall. The location is also nice - near the beach

After a hot day at the beach we decided to quench our thirst and grab a lunch at an old favorite in Bush Tavern. Service on the day was incredibly slow from a bunch of disinterested waiters. Waiting 30min for a halloumi started is far from acceptable. The rest of the meals were rather average with a dry looking pizza... More
