My wife and I went here for Sunday Lunch - BIG mistake! It was 1.30pm and all the roast beef was gone!! The "crispy" roast potato's were soft, the Yorkshire pudding was soggy and the green beans were rock hard. Then they ran out of...More

Four of us called in for something to eat about 3.00 on Sunday afternoon. All tables by the windows were marked as reserved, though none were occupied throughout the time we were there. Obviously, only certain people are allowed to occupy the tables with the...More

We had a great lunch overlooking the beach today. Both of us had Caesar salad which was nicely presented and tasty. A lovely relaxing way to spend a Sunday in August.
