Stopped here and had fish and chips by the sea. Very nice and very good value for money. Also very popular. Recommend if you are on the pier.

We visited here for a warming cuppa and quick bite after a disappointing visit to the pier. The welcome was warm and friendly, and tables clean and cleared of the remains of previous visitors (many establishments are poor on this). For the price the tea/coffee...More
