Not famous for its food, but a must-visit for it's location. You may or may not fancy the food, but to buy something and sit and enjoy the view on a breezier day, from behind their glass wind breaks, is well worthwhile. Great for watching the kids play on the beach!

Sightseeing
Take a promenade along this victorian clifftop green... with spectacular views over the Channel (see France on a clear day) and the best of Victorian architecture behind you... make sure you walk as far as the Grand and why not stop there for tea?
