Great staff and brill service. We had the dressed crab and fish n chips, all cooked to perfection. A bit cramped inside, but it made up for everything else !! Make sure you have booked in advanced as it is very busy particularly in season.

Can honestly say this was the best night out we’ve had in ages. Staff, location, setting, food all exceeded our expectations. Thought might be pricey but we both felt was significant value for money. We have left stuffed & very happy.
