Saturday afternoon and enjoyed a lovely cream tea.
Warm welcome and sat in the window. Lovely view watching the boats go by. It was busy but service was relaxed and efficient with order quickly taken and warm scones, strawberry jam and generous portions of jam delivered to the table. Plentiful pots of real tea. At just over £20 for four it made a nice change instead of lunch.
Lots of other guests enjoying sandwiches, light lunches etc.
Would definitely visit again and the walk around the light house was a pleasant finale to our afternoon.

We had breakfast here with friends and all agreed it was one of the best we have had!
The English breakfast was cooked to perfection using good quality produce.
The price includes a top up of decent coffee and more toast if rquired although the cooked breakfast is sunstantial so one round for us was adequate.
Our friends are quite fussy eaters and they couldnt praise it enough.
Also the service was excellent so overall highly recommended and will certainly be back for more!

Organising a large table somewhere as popular as this must be challenging for the staff but they managed it extremely well. There were 12 of us for lunch and the normal situation occurred with late arrivals etc. but it was all dealt with easily, we were promptly served and the food was all very good. It was disappointing that they'd run out of the pie from the special's board but that's a minor comment (it must have been good!). The service was excellent and it was good value for money as well. Recommended.

had lunch today. I was seated by a window - great view, even on a blustery day. A comprehensive menu, reasonably priced. Excellent, friendly service. I read reviews about the scones - they were all correct - awesome. best scones I've had for years..... well worth a visit.

Had a late breakfast here on the weekend. Very tasty, not expensive and not rushed either. Fantastic costal views, does a lovely cream tea as well!
