We had a great afternoon here for lunch in the sunshine. The menu is good and all the food we had was fab. The menu is all fish and shellfish but apparently they do have some meat dishes which they can provide for non-fish eaters....More

We booked for an outside table and everything was ready for us. The tables are VERY rustic. The service is friendly but not silver service standarad. The food, however was excellent. The home grown oysters were huge and delicious as was everything else we ate.

Expensive, busy and parking could be difficult as little limited. Service good, food good yet simple and moderately priced. Rustic location by the Fleet near Ferrybridge.

By no means a sophisticated ambience, but all the better for that. A super outside table for lunch of lemon sole and spicy crab, preceded by home-grown oysters. Excellent attentive staff, polite, friendly and interested. In case of rain, there is an excellent 'David Copperfield'...More

Cannot give prices but seemed reasonable for the quality of the food. You need to know this is a beach cafe rather than a restaurant but the quality of the food certainly is of restaurant standard.
