Great lunch made extra special with the sun shining and eating outside. We have been many times to this restaurant and you really can't match it anywhere locally for fresh fish.

We went as a result of Broadchurch and apparently so did lots of people. The place was very busy. Lots of great places to eat and drink. Lovely views. Could be difficult to park in the summer.
