Food is fantastic but I especially recommend the glazed chicken stir fry or the roast. Only get a pudding between two though as they are gigantic. To avoid the queues book a table upstairs.

Very nice cafe with brilliant views over the bay. Dogs also welcome inside and out. Very polite and courteous service. 2 pots of tea and a rock cake was around £6.60 so very reasonable.

stopped off here after going on the beach. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was very good and the cakes looked delicious, but had no room. Dogs allowed in the conservatory. A great thing on a cold day. Would recommend

Hi. Sorry just got your question which is probably to late now. Yes, there is a car park on manor road just opposite the clock tower restaurant. A few minutes walk away.
