Always had fresh, tasty , wellcooked meals . Waiting time isn't usually too long,but it's worth any wait you have. They're busy because they're good! This is for the Take Away. We haven't used the restaurant as yet

The reputation of this place precedes them winning awards in previous years. Great fish and chips if a tad expensive. Service friendly and efficient. Had takeaway and sat on the downs overlooking the sea. Perfect!

Sorry I can not answer this question. You can always get in touch with them and ask. As somebody else has said you can always use the Takeaway if you can not take in your dog.
