Recently went here with friends after a day at the beach. There was quite a wait as they were pretty busy but the pizzas were definitely worth it!! DELICIOUS!! We sat out the back in the yard and ate them - a lovely area to sit quietly and have your meal.

4 Cheeses pizza was just amazing, the best ever. Baked fresh in a log fired oven and then eaten round the back on rustic seating with amazing views or direct access onto the beach. Simply delicious.

Not such an issue, but on turning up to collect them I was told it would be another 15 mins .. 15 mins turned out to be 30mins! On getting them home we discovered that the edges were all charcoal burnt... More

Lovely golden coloured breads and pastries. It's more of a shop than a sit-down set-up. There are a few wooden seats behind the shop on the edge of the beach where pizzas etc might be eaten.
