Café
“At the end of a bustling pedestrianised street, amongst a variety of independent shops, ‘Coast’ sits conveniently on the edge of the High Street. The Restaurant and Bar is open from 9am till Midnight 7 days a week in the summer and is always busy with locals and visitors. The Restaurant has a very rustic look with exposed brickwork, mixed with quirky features. The recently expanded part of the restaurant features a traditional stone Pizza oven which is roaring day and night. The menu is often updated and contains predominantly locally sourced seasonal dishes, as well as the excellent aforementioned Pizzas. It’s a great place for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, with a great choice of dishes whatever the time of day. Because of it’s position on the high street, which is always busy in the summer, it’s a great spot for people watching whilst enjoying a coffee and watching the world go by. ”
