Had a cream tea here on a gorgeous sunny day, al fresco eating is limited by the council but what available is worth doing. Coffee and cakes well presented and tasted divine

It is as everyone says - great food superbly presented, excellent service, and a terrific view of the harbour. Sensible pricing. Couldn't ask for more.

I highly recommend eating here. The staff are super friendly and the atmosphere is nice and relaxing by the harbour. The food is awesome. Me, my wife and our 7 month old daughter ate here after hearing about the food here and it didn't disappoint!...More

Response from Lynnq150 | Reviewed this property |
Yes there is parking about 5 mins away behind the Sloop Inn, if that's full try the Island car park which is about 10 mins away, take plenty of change with you for parking.
Can you buy bread or any other products to take away whilst I am on holiday that is gluten free ?

Hi, We don't sell bread to take away - sorry, but we do any of our tarts, scones etc to takeaway. Hope to see you - Tamsin

The Searoom is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All our cakes, scones and tarts are made by hand in our kitchen and we use only the best local meat, fish and vegetables in our restaurant. Almost everything on the menu is also available gluten free. We have the most amazing Harbour view!
