Lovely food highly recommend the haddock and chunky hand cut chips with delicious mushy pees all this with a lovely view across to Old Harry and Studland. Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recommend for a treat either lunchtime or evenings.

It's lovely having breakfast watching the ferries and boats going past. We love it because it's near the chain ferry and boat to brownsea Island.
