Came here after an exhausting jaunt with grand children around the fair ground.. So it was a welcome stop. The food is first class. It does get busy at certain times.. There is seating inside or as we did outside on the promenade.. There is seating in a large park opposite which is beautiful . Highly recommended.

Very nice food in a busy restaurant which is always a good sign. Visited on Easter Bank holiday and managed to get a table but filled up just after we arrived very quickly.

Very good fish and chips to take away, they also have a restaurant. Friendly staff can be extremely busy at times. Small portions and a bit expensive for the food you get. Dogs not allowed.

Minute portions for the steep price. Bread roll was stale and asked for little salt and it was piled on.. not worth the price you're paying!
