We were walking the dogs and on the spur of the moment decided to have a drink.

We sat outside in the last of the sun. We ordered our drinks at the servery from a friendly bartender. There was a good selection of beer and wine and am sure other liquor.

As we were enjoying our drinks a very pleasant waitress asked if we might like to dine.

We decided we would and ordered a salad and Fajitas.

Both appeared quite quickly with drink refills.

The food was good pub food at reasonable price.

A good spur of the moment decision and am sure we will be back.

A friend recommended this place for a 'good night' and we were not disappointed. We had a few beers and a lovely well presented meal at a reasonable price, The staff were very helpful with helping us to choose the best options. We loved the position of the restaurant, right opposite the sea front, with plenty of outdoor seating. Will definitely be back soon, we were made very welcome. Thanks to all the staff there.

Delicious food and very kind staff. We just popped in for brunch having visited the Sunday market round the corner.

The staff, although busy, were welcoming and genuine and the food was fantastic.

Sat outside in the sun looking at the beach. Table service was slow- waited 20 minutes for menus. Ordered drinks, hot chips and calamari. Calamari was delicious. Chips looked amazing but tasted like they had been cooked earlier and warmed up - pretty disappointing.

We went here for a mid-week early evening family meal for five. Having booked ahead to make sure that we would have a table, when we arrived there was a bit of a flurry to find us somewhere to sit, clearly they don't operate a booking system.

Having been asked if we wanted drinks we ordered drinks and waited nearly ten minutes for them to arrive, it was then that we were told that there was a thirty to forty minute wait for food. A bit of a surprise in a bar that was perhaps only a third full. We went ahead and ordered some food.

For vegetarians, there is quite a wide selection and in general, the food offering is good with a wide range of different food tastes catered for. Their facebook page has a link to the menu.

Between us, we ordered the three vegetarian pizza options, the vegetarian burger and my sister-in-law had fish and chips. Our table person was right there was indeed a fairly long wait. So long was the wait that more drinks were needed. I have since acquired a taste for Panhead beer, jolly good and I entertained myself and I hope everyone else exploring the fun to be had with the app that lets you select music for the 'Jukebox' system. For me not enough from the 60's and definitely not enough punk era! Jolly japes though.

The food when it did arrive was very good, well made, well presented, well proportioned (massive pizzas - we really could have shared one between two) and tasty, and everything seemed as if it had been freshly made to order. So well done and thank you.

Overal it was a good experience and a nice night out, I wonder though how long the wait might be if it is really busy or did we just hit a night with not enough staff on either front-of-house or in the kitchen.

Highly recommended and we will be going there again. Thank you.
