We really love the setting and food of this beach house overlooking half moon bay. The seafood platter is fantastic, the risotto is to rave about, their soufflé is unbelievable. Ingredients (fish) are consistently fresh. Highly recommended for a lunch overlooking the bay.

I wouldn't bother. The Fish and Chips were dreadful: I had to throw them away. Go on down to Chelsea or up to Brighton - much better quality.
