Love the new pizza's, onion rings are absolutely lovely as is the coffee and the sticky toffee pudding (especially if you get it with sea salt caramel ice cream instead of vanilla). The food is very reasonably priced and arrives quickly. Still mourn the loss...More

Well worth a visit. Great views of the harbour and attentive staff. Recommend the breakfast - really good bacon and sausages, fresh free -range eggs and tasty bloomer bread (white and brown). Excellent latte.

The balcony bar located on the harbour front overlooking the seafront provides a fast paced and welcoming environment for people to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner or if you just fancy drink you are always more than welcome. We specialise in live sport and have numerous screens so you don't miss out on any of the action no matter where you are sat. We don't take bookings but due to the fast paced nature of the bar we do promise to seat everyone that comes through our door.
