Good selection of food and drink but it is quite expensive, perhaps not surprising given the location and the need to get everything out to South Straddie. You will need a boat to get here unless you are already on the island.

Love Tipplers. Weekend days are the best. Staff in the evening can be a little off with customers and you feel your being a nuisance as not many people around. But otherwise food is nice. Enough choice. Would be great if they had drink specials...More
