On January the 8th we are closing for 5 weeks to begin work on some exciting changes to our restaurant. We are opening again on Friday 8th February. Whilst 'closed' we are still very much 'open' behind the scenes, taking bookings and handling all enquiries.

Welcome to our Restaurant With Rooms across the road from the dunes and the beautiful sandy beach beyond. Inspired by the coastal motels you might find in California, we're a relaxing hideaway from the stresses and strains of modern life where grown-ups come to dine, dream and relax. We have great food, amazing beds and a lovely little spa treatment room in the garden. Our team are here to make you smile.

gallivant, verb: to roam about in search of pleasure or amusement, often in search of food



The beach is a three minute walk from our front door.  Hidden behind towering grass fringed dunes it is one of the loveliest sandy beaches in Southern England.  Spectacular at all times of the year, a walk on its pristine sands is the perfect antidote to life’s stresses and strains.
