Had dinner here the night before and it wasn't too bad. Returned the next day for lunch. Being at the seaside thought the crab sandwiches should be excellent but were very disappointing. For £9.50 you get two slices of supermarket sliced bread, a thin filling...More

Popped in for a drink with friends. The food was looking really good going to the tables around us so we ordered a seafood platter to share. It was amazing. So good we had to stay for another bottle. Will definitely be going back to...More

Flat lager, brushed aside as "the glass". Overpriced and poorly cooked seafood, scallops were 12.50 bland and the poorest we'd seen on a full week in Padstow, piri piri prawns were rubbery to the extent it would be hard to replicate it yourself, bread came...More

Dissapointing. Expensive and poor quality meals for the price. Not a good choice for us, so wouldnt visit again. Lots of families eating, so child friendly and dogs were allowed. We just expected a little better quality in Padstow but not bad enough to complain.
