Amazing location and service. Thank you for going to the effort of decorating for a birthday. We thought the menu was a little limited. The fish pate, prawn cocktail and chowder were lovely. Maybe more fancy salads/burgers??? Kids meal was good. We were a little under welmed with the pizzas. Would Def come again though. Thank you

Really lovely time having late lunch/ early tea in the pod we even got a bit of sun towards the end which enhanced the view. All the staff were really welcoming and friendly and got good service. Will definitely visit again.

Absolutely fabulous, great food, lovely experience and the staff were exceptional, friendly and attentive. Only downside was the weather, but we will definitely be coming back in the Summer.

A slighty wider menu would be good and pizzas are a bit pricy for the size you get. Lovely service and friendly, helpful staff.

Booked our pod experience to share with family for sundowner drinks and nibbles. With the weather stormy and inclement we were able to watch the waves crashing on the shore, all from the comfort of our cosy warm pod. Food and drinks were great and the service very good and friendly. Great fun in wild weather 🌊☔️❄️🐾🌦💨

The pods make a great private space to chat and eat. Loved the Bluetooth facility to put our own music on and the WiFi in the pods. We appreciated the friendly service. The wild rain and wind made the sea horses stand up! It was cosy and warm inside Thanks Kat for taking our photos

Fantastic experience! Maybe even more so, on the cold stormy day we visited. We enjoyed the cosy pod, dining on amazing locally caught fish. While the staff braved the weather and the perilous steps, somehow always smiling and providing great service.

We enjoyed a great evening in one of the pods, weather outside not the best but nice and warm inside. The Pod's are a great idea with a spectacular view. the children loved the whole experience, especially the lovely seafood platter. Looking forward to visiting again.
