We had a takeaway from the Deck and the portions were huge and the prawn cocktail was brilliant. We also had ice cream another day, again the scoops were massive and the ice cream was very tasty, not to be missed!

Visited here last week, and can highly recommend that anyone visiting the island should eat at the deck as the food was amazing! Great service from lovely staff. Will definitely be back next time we visit!

We had ice creams on a hot afternoon and bought some tablet to take home. Delicious! They have some nice little gifts in their shop which are worth a look.

A little confused as we couldn't see where to order our drinks from, eventually worked it out that you have to ring a bell in the gift shop. Gorgeous views over the harbour and very tranquil.Nice staff.

A lovely sheltered shore site beside the Herring walk opposite the pontoons. Delightful friendly professional staff who offered additional options to the already varied menu. Great to see that takeaway food also available today until 7.00pm. HUGE QUALITY PORTIONS OFFERED AT GREAT VALUE PRICES.
