Delicious, great value picnic for the beach. We had to finish our sandwiches in two sittings as they were so big! Really looking forward to trying their evening menu for dinner!

The food we had was very nice - teacake and cooked breakfast. Staff were very friendly but it is a little cramped due to its size.
