Stopped to have oysters whilst walking on the sea wall we all mostly enjoyed them (first timers struggled more than others). Second time stopped for hot chocolate and donuts. All very good, providing all with the desired sugar rush. Friendly staff especially the oyster seller on Thursday morning, he sold well and gave the impression he was very knowledgeable making recommendations to suit each customer.

Stumbled on this little gem of a place on the way to another eatery.
There is limited seating here but why not just lean on the surrounding sea wall and enjoy the excellent fare on offer.
My son and I indulged in Atlantic line caught cod and ships and not only were we pleasantly surprised by the generous portion, we found the quality to be excellent. Other diners were indulging in the oysters and everyone seemed very happy with them.
You can also buy a variety of beers and I must admit I wish I wasn't driving that day.
There's a selection of sweets available if you have room left.
We will certainly be returning when we are next in town

This is a shack on the beach front selling all kinds of everything but all fresh and delicious - We had quite a selection from the menu - Cappuccinos , warm crunchy donuts and a wonderful chocolate ice cream in a lovely cone and a generous portion of delicious hot and crispy chips - well worth the wait in the queue - no wonder its popular- excellent food :)

Great oysters and good value too. Quick service even though it was very busy. Will definitely visit again soon.
