We came here two mornings in a row for scones and coffees - it's lovely! We sat outside both times and the view is lovely, the coffee is great and the scones were fresh and delicious. Would definitely return!

Yes there is parking about 5 mins away behind the Sloop Inn, if that's full try the Island car park which is about 10 mins away, take plenty of change with you for parking.

The Searoom is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All our cakes, scones and tarts are made by hand in our kitchen and we use only the best local meat, fish and vegetables in our restaurant. Almost everything on the menu is also available gluten free. We have the most amazing Harbour view!
