Nothing to criticise. It's our weekly treat. Can't recommend it enough.

The menu is small but well cooked and very tasty, we have eaten at this venue a few times and will be returning. Staff are genuinely friendly and knowledgeable of the menu, also great local cider, crisp and refreshing. We have a Rottweiler who is always welcomed by the staff. Well worth walking on the 5 mile long beach and to return to a fantastic meal. Try for yourselves to see the quality.

Very good options for vegans, i had the vegan pizza which was super tasty, never had brocoli and cauliflower on a pizza before but it works well. Service was spot on, and the atmosphere was very welcoming. We will be returning again for sure

Great location overlooking dunes and lake and a glimpse of the sea. Dog and child friendly. In fact perfect for families. Safe outdoor seating area where kids can run around. Parking .. free in the off season. Like everywhere in Cornwall best to book. Recommended.

It was really quiet when we arrived at midday (got a little busier as we left), the food was absolutely amazing and came super quickly! Thanks so much, will definitely be coming back again to try more of the menu.

Lovely comfortable atmosphere the only thing that let it down slightly was the lack of/slow service. It was busy when we arrived and we did have to wait a while for our food. We also had to shout to someone to eventually order dessert. Despite this the food was fantastic & we will return.

Service pleasant and friendly although a little slow but we weren’t in a rush. It was quite busy for Sunday lunch and a lot of noise and barking dogs. Will visit again and recommend but feel prices will stop us going back more frequently.

Fantastic menu (Sunday roast). Everything was amazing, lovely service, fantastic food (and so quick!) very honest young man on the till as I overpaid and he immediately told me. Can’t recommend more highly.
