Whilst we have an informal approach to make everyone feel welcome, we take our food and service very seriously. Fuss free, modern British fayre, made from scratch and delicious every time.
Our team of talented Chefs, use local, seasonal ingredients to produce a creative and contemporary menu in relaxed surroundings. The perfect accompaniment to that stunning view.

We had a very enjoyable evening. The food and service was amazing.
Best service we have received in a long time anywhere. The atmosphere was lovely even due to Covid safety measures. The staff were so friendly. The food was delicious also!
Fantastic, felt safe, well attended to and staff were really helpful. Food was great. Thank you
The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The COVID measures were well implemented and didn’t feel intrusive. The food was excellent.
The place to go anytime of the day, the staff are very friendly, the food is good and the atmosphere is great, I love the music nights
My sister and I came for Sunday lunch which we thoroughly enjoyed and the staff were very attentive however the one thing that concerned me was when we arrived,wearing masks, we were greeted by a member of staff with no visor or mask. We were taken to our table and realised that not one member of staff had a face covering of any sort. Not even when our food was bought out. This did rather worry me and felt I need to raise this matter. Would be grateful to hear your Covid policies concerning serving customers food and drink.
Lovely surroundings and very friendly atmosphere
We recently had a sunday lunch here whilst on a short holiday in the area. The food was perfect, the sea views were outstanding and the service was second to none. Overall, a great dining experience....thank you to all concerned.
A really tasty lunch in a fresh and uncomplicated setting with great views.
Everything was very well organised and we felt completely Covid safe.
Friendly staff. Service quick even tho busy. Covid friendly felt safe.
Guys Absolutely fantastic service from the team given the difficulties of the CV19 restrictions. My mother was overwhelmed (75th birthday), you made her feel wonderful and your efforts to make her feel special will not be forgotten - we'll be back!
