Very friendly staff, really efficient service, good value and above all extremely delicious, seasonal food. Fabulous mussels locally sourced and beautifully cooked. Two of us had the roast - hot, generous size and great flavour. Atmosphere buzzy and warm. Can’t fault this coastal gem.

We had a lovely family meal here, but lacks personality. Such a shame as a lovely place, just need some more enthusiasm.
