Rustic restaurant on the way to Coromandel down the Firth of Thames. Very friendly staff and a good view from the verandah across the Firth. Recommended.

Really lovely little place right across the street from the beach north of Thames. I highly recommend the creamy mushrooms with the potatoes and rocket & tomato salsa salad with a side of sausage. I think it's mostly outdoor seating if I remember correctly...
