Two families with kids. Menu was great, I went for the spicy beef nachos which didn’t disappoint. Others had pulled pork burger, steak burger, ham egg and chips, mezze plate and vege nachos. All were excellent. Service was top notch. Will definitely go again!

Description
A family run restaurant and bar, a stones throw from the lovely East Wittering beach. Great cocktails, beers and wines. Interesting menu with something for everyone from Brisket chilli to local Cod loin from the fishmongers. Outdoor seating for alfresco dining. Cosy in the winter, airy and cool in the summer. Live music.
