If you're visiting Charlestown then this place is a must. Fantastic cream tea and freshly brewed coffee. Didn't sample the food off the menu but from what we saw being served it won't be long before we do! Well recommended.

I don't think Wreckers has dedicated parking but there is free parking on the road leading down to the harbour. There's also a pay and display car park if you can't find a free space.
