you do not expect such excellent food and kind staff in a high demand place with such wonderful views. We had big, delicious plates of mussels and the kids menu includes a healthy option of salmon. Will definitely come back!

Can’t beat having a glass Of wine looking at the ocean. My only complain is that you have to go order at the bar and the outside seating is very limited and in high demand.

We were a party of golfers and had an upstairs table between two groups of hen parties. Service was efficient and food pretty good for a pub and the views over the beach spectacular. Reasonable prices and we really enjoyed the evening
