A mountain of mussels! and two huge chunks of crusty bread! I normally order the fillet steak and it never fails, but the mussels is my back up dish! They also do a really nice plate of squid in the light bites!

Stumbled upon this place during a walk along the sea front. A lovely outside seating area...perfect for soaking up the sun. A well stocked bar with a great selection. Dog friendly too with bowls of water outside.
