We found the staff to be attentive friendly and efficient. Loved the view of the Sunday morning walkers and dogs trotting past. Food was great. Well presented and tasted delicious. Our dog was welcomed and made at home.

We were very hungry having missed lunch and were looking for some hearty fare. Not disappointed - we had the calamari followed by the lamb burger and the esparto. Perfect. Tasty and filling. Desert good too. Great location and friendly service.
