We had been directed here by another which was just closing but despite accurate directions we walked past it 3 times! However it is a lovely relaxed place and made two excellent crab sandwiches for our onward journey.

Lunched here today with my husband. I had a pizza made with a sourdough base, topped with goat's cheese, pesto and olives. Delicious. A lovely spacious place, comfortable seating and friendly staff.
