On a chilly wet day, mom and I stopped by for a hot cup of tea and a lovely pie with clotted cream. DELICIOUS! Would definitely visit again the next time I'm in the area (which I hope isn't too far in the future).

Lunch at Rachel’s, crab sandwich and soup, all fresh, with large white wine and a beer, in the sunshine on a Monday. What’s not to like! Recommended over traditional burger bars that seem to be the other options, for me anyway. Plus friendly smiling service.

Not the 5 star restaurant, a simple shack by the sea, not just the usual cod and chips but is like being on the Mediterranean Sea, seafood stew, mussels, mix seafood etc! Really loved it!

I’m terribly sorry we close on the 28th October for the season. Opening again in the spring. Hopefully you’ll be able to make it for a meal then. Kind regards.

Hello. I don't believe so as it's been a very hectic summer and everyone is shattered by closing time. Sorry to disappoint.
