What can I say about this place? The view is amazing the food is amazing. You do have to make a reservation and I would think come the summer you would have to book way in advance. They have tons of Seafood on the menu but it you don't like that they offer meat and vegetarian dishes.

Meant to specialise in fish but the mussels were awful, my portion were half empty and the sauce tastes like water, the other portion that were ordered were undercooked and had no sauce. Definitely would not visit again!

We were first in as we had been recommended by a friend who had been some years back and told to get there early. We ordered a modestly priced bottle of light French wine. Very good value. We ordered Dressed Crab and half a Lobster per the menu. It took some 30mins to arrive (no complaints there they were very... More

Hello SimonandSally, Thank you for your review and we are very disappointed that you didnt enjoy your meal, especially as they are two of our specialities. Our Lobster is freshly caught daily from Mudeford Bay and we believe it represents excellent value. The Lymington local Crab is picked fresh every day. A mixture of white and brown meat is then...

What an absolutely beautiful location. We arrived on bank holiday Monday for lunch. There was a small queue but we did not wait for long at all, and the seating arrangements were very well organised. We were really lucky to get seated by the window with a fantastic view across to the Isle of Wight. I had the prawn and... More

We stumbled upon this place last Wednesday (13th April), thought we'd get a cup of tea while finding a new beach that we'd not been to before. Great place, great location and much more than a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich at the beach! Great coffee and what great cheese cake. The menu looked interesting as well, we'll... More

Went here with my husband, friends and our dogs. It was a great meal right on the beach with some lovely views and not terribly pricey either. We were pleasantly surprised that we could sit outside with the dogs. You can't book in advance but while there was a small queue to sit, it moves quite quickly. If you are... More
