We pass this restaurant / bar every night as we walk up to village and the owner scowls out at everyone...... Been in a couple of times and no atmosphere. Drinks poor value for money as no taste. Shame as it has enviable position looking over seafront. Cheer up Mr S and turn down the volume as the piano music... More

The bar is in a gorgeous spot and a really lovely bar, but the fella that served us seemed like he just couldn't be bothered...which was silly as we do love a drink or two. We had one drink in here and moved on to a friendlier bar.

From the street it looked more like a trendy bar with a pianist playing. So we just called in for a drink. We ended up staying for a meal and it was a lot better that I expected. The service was very good and staff very helpful and friendly the food was excellent and reasonable.

Visited several times for breakfast and coffees. Nice staff, prices good and food very nice. Hard to fault a place where you get a sea view, full English breakfast including a hot beverage and a fresh orang juice for £5!

Last year when we visited this restaurant we thought it was so very 'cool'. We were close to the seafront with a mixture of pleasant surroundings and a soul singer with an keybourd player..wonderful, just loved the atmosphere! ALL HAS CHANGED!! As we loved the food and area last time, we re-visited again this year, and what a dissapointment..gone is... More

My husband and I went here for a cocktail. The setting is nice and live music playing but very dated music more for the older generation. The seating was lovely however the cocktails weren't that good and were pricey
