Fathers Day 2017 falls on Sunday 3rd September.

The Rockpool Cafe offers a casual seaside dining experience.
Alacarte style, we provide a range of different meals, mostly seafood (we are right by the beach after all) but we also offer snacks if you're not feeling like a full lunch.
Tea, Coffee, cake, beer, local wines and a great atmosphere...
We hope you will join us.
