Why we love it

A class act of a spot, definitely the pick of the watering holes on the main seafront drag. Inside is done out like a cave, full of secluded nooks and crannies to get romantic in (or plan your next smuggling mission: no judgement here). The frontage boasts plenty of pretty picnic tables and peerless access to the beach and twinkling horizon, with a dedicated outside bar when the weather’s nice. Food-wise, Tempest’s recently conceived ‘Crab Claw’ menu is to die for; We love the ‘sharing pot’ with clams, mussels, prawns, smoked merguez sausage and rattle potatoes. The sauce is so tasty you’ll order extra bread, and the whole thing is served with stainless steel pincers. Cracking.


The Sharing pot is really generous for the price
The Bloody Marys are some of the best around
Mac & Cheese is a simple classic done just right
