Had midweek early evening meal out with family. Service was average. Food was average and the place was cold. I wouldn't rush back.

Stunning views of the beach, lovely atmosphere, friendly and professional service. A really lovely place for a celebration. Menu has a great range and the food is delicious. As a vegan I was limited but really enjoyed my meal. I have returned and will again.

This is a great place for a big group of adults and children. Food is good, lots of space and staff coped brilliantly with our group including 7 children under 7! Plus there's a beautiful view of the beach. We'll definitely be back.
