Had breakfast here and it was lovely. It's a nice small dining room that has a large window that over looks a garden which was nice. Friendly service, typical pricing for a place like it is, and delicious food. Definitely try the Swedish pancakes, Yummm!...More

Great lunch menu. Boont Beer on tap. A great way to end a great round of golf. The fish and chips were outstanding and the burger looked great as well.

We had great anticipation for a great dining experience, but frankly, everything was pretty ordinary. The room is very pretty, with interior garden views, but given the Inn is perched above the coast, it was disappointing to have no view. Service was only okay, and...More

The food was only average, nothing special and given the wonderful location, shocked they have no view from the restaurant, very disappointed!
