I'm afraid that despite its billing of itself, I found this place disappointingly average. Unless you specifically want it for its location near Alum Chine, I would suggest that you can find much better than this B&B.

Can’t stop coming to this fab on-trend place. Delicious food. Can’t beat it. Brunch followed by American pancakes and perfect coffee. The decor never fails to impress, the atmosphere is always good and the staff are lovely.
