Stopped off en route home after spending several days in Devon. Only had a coffee, but the food menu looked good. Nice to sit with great views of the beach and sea.

They sell an amazing range of ice cream flavours, all very delicious looking. You can sit at one of the small tables outside and enjoy the most beautiful views while you enjoy your ice cream.
