The cafĂŠ/restaurant which can seat 40 inside and 40 on the sunny seafront terrace, is appreciated not only by the B&B guests, but also by the wider local community and tourists who enjoy homemade cakes and superb coffee, a casual lunch, or a relaxed reasonably priced dinner at a wonderfully located, relaxed neighbourhood restaurant. The varied menu featuring authentic Italian dishes made to order include homemade pastas and risottos as well as fresh fish and seasonal choices. Homemade pizzas are made to order and are enjoyed to takeaway or on the expansive terrace where in-house diners can relax listening to the waves breaking on the shore, and also by locals and holiday makers who pop in after a day at the beach, keen to purchase a delicious, homemade, take-away meal for the family. Anchor Guest House and the restaurant have in previous years been operated on a six months, seasonal basis, but from April 2019 due to extended opening hours and the switch to continuing operations throughout the autumn/winter seasons both businesses are experiencing an increase in turnover. The business model is very flexible â€“ operate a profitable B&B in a stunning location working 6 months on / 6 months off, continue as presently run with the added cafĂŠ/restaurant business, or take it even further to a year round business, by elaborating on the hospitality side to include functions, cookery schools, specialty and/or taster menus, group events etc. The energy within the business is contagious and the opportunity for continued success and future growth positively exciting!
