We are famous for our Cream Teas as our unique scone recipe has remained the same since the business began. Local crab sandwiches and delicious freshly prepared chips are other favourites on our menu.

Best salmon I've ever eaten! The people here were so lovely, quick and attentive service. I couldn't believe how fast the food came out. The attached shop is a great idea.
