Went for afternoon tea, very busy and cramped, not enough staff. Waited for fifteen minutes to get served without success so gave up and left.

Great lunchtime stop off after some fossil hunting on the beach. Good selection of food options, children’s menu, teas and coffee. Lovely friendly staff, couldn’t do enough to help. Highly recommend the jacket spuds!
