So nice to find seaside kiosk food which isn't stodgy or heavy. Nice choice of traditional fayre as well as lighter fish and salad options. We usually head towards this place when we're in Bridport area.

Outside dinning of surprisingly great quality. The only disadvantage is that there is no protection from the weather. Be sure to wear a hat if it is sunny.
