Great food and service. really helpful team who really looked after us. Atmosphere only marked down slightly due to other guests with older children dressing up and standing around our table whilst we ate

We loved our post New Years evening at the Winking Prawn. The staff were really attentive and the food was great! It’s great that it was open in the evening- a real novelty for us as we didn’t know this ever happened. Such a lovely atmosphere and delicious food in a really unique atmosphere. Only small complaint was that we actually hoped that some of the daytime menu had been available. We were looking forward to our pint of prawns and being able to eat some seafood in a roll. Great place for families and really comfortable for our early evening family meal. Thank you for making us so welcome!

Such a cute little beach hut with a lovely atmosphere. We enjoyed an evening meal here. The fish is as fresh as you can imagine and prepared perfectly. I would love to come back for breakfast and lunch.
