    Avoid the Cabin we waited 12 mins after she took our order for drinks despite not being busy then a total of 45 mins for most disgusting cheap looking fish finger sandwich and brick hard wedges. This place is a disgrace! Total rip off stupid money foul food and terrible service. Don’t waste your money

    Can’t believe we had to pay 20 pounds for two glasses of wine. We weren’t aallowed to sit at the window as we were not eating!! When some men came in they were told if they weren’t eating they should go to another bar.
    Last time we will visit the Cabin.
