A one way system is in operation to ensure we keep both our staff and customers safe.   Hand gel must be used when arriving and departing, every table will be sanitised between customers and all our plates and cups are home compostable.   It is so lovely to be back at the beach but PLEASE STAY ALERT and follow the social distancing rules.
