Lovely and peaceful location, despite being just off the high street so we could pop out to the greengrocers, fish mongers, bakers and the many other shop or stroll down to the Quay. Such a delight to watch the Estuary at different times of day and at different tides. Handy free parking outside alley too, if you're lucky.. and we were.
