  • We liked the attention staff gave to co vid requirements. Lucky to get in without a booking at a nice two seater table.Views were superb, Staff were helpful, But.......My wifes poached eggs were cold....  more »
  • Well maintained historic building for the Coast Guard. The rooms are filled with memorabilia of yesteryears.  more »
  • Lovely spot and gorgeous views but think twice before entering the gift shop. The old lady in here is past her time in customer service. What a sad ending to a beautiful day when being yelled at for "shopping" ...
  • Gorgeous, but if you think you are getting a original clotted cream tea as advertised... Think again, squirty cream from a can is NOT cornish or Devon clotted cream, did try to tell the staff but just looked like I was speaking another language... Shame
