Stale bread roll. Uninspiring fish dish with mixed vegetables. Basic sorbet. 2 bottles of beer all at a price of £32.10 (service charge not included). Not good value for money. Only plus was the v good Polish waitress.

Good selection of basic food and drink on offer. Only place to grab a drink in North sands - nice seating area out the front.
