The owner and his staff are very personable and relaxed, but the food is where it shines. The full English breakfast was done to perfection; the ingredients of the highest quality and cooked very nicely indeed.

Very friendly owners, good value quality food. They even gave us some ginger biscuits for sea sickness before our trip to Lundy! We had breakfast but the burgers looked very tempting if we were that at lunchtime too! Highly recommended
