One of those places it's sadly hard to think of anything really nice to say about. It's got a lovely location and view, but totally lacks ambience. Menu holds some interest, but the delivery underwhelms.

Attractive welcoming family run B&B also offering very nice meals to non residents. Visited for lunch. Local asparagus and lovely glass of rose wine in light airy restaurant overlooking harbour. Wish we had stayed there rather than nearby hotel.

Hi, we had a dog with us in the summer and she was with us in the garden, however from memory I do think we were told well behaved dogs were welcome inside as well
