Awful place, staff are visibly embarrassed by the silly rules made up as the owner sees fit! Also very grubby, dirty and untidy, stale cakes, crockery is chipped and dirty looking, I won't go into the toilet facility apart from GRIM! Avoid is my advice!!

Overlooking the sea at Penarth this restaurant is dismal, grubby, and rooted in some far off time when customers didn't really matter. Its position makes it a 'popular' place for a coffee and it has a captive audience. I visited with my family and found...More
