Sunday lunch (roast beef, or smoked haddock) was absolutely delicious. The kids nearly took the pattern off the beautiful vintage crockery. The welcome was relaxed and warm even though we arrived with snowy boots and a dog. It felt like home. Couldn’t have asked for...More

After a circular yomp starting and finishing at the duck pond and encompassing a fair stretch of the coast path...the bunting and bay window beckoned us in... It was a delight to find ourselves in a 50's front room atmosphere-complete with flying-on-the-wall geese...cosy but not...More
