Looking out at the spotless sand and sea whilst sipping a chilled drink on The View's large, immaculate patio really brings to mind feelings of the Mediterranean. Add in delicious food, and you'll be convinced that you're miles away from Skegness, which is, in reality, only a ten-minute walk away along the coast. A dedicated team has transformed an old coastguard tower into one of the best attractions on the east coast, managing to find the perfect match to create a wonderful, authentic café bar experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and enhanced by the stylish design, and they have managed to inject a warmth that makes The View as suitable for a morning Illy coffee and cake as it is for a private barbecue party on the patio. This thoughtfully designed area has glass screens enabling alfresco dining to take place on all but the chilliest of days.

The top-notch food on offer - much of which is locally sourced - caters for all discerning tastes. Our starters of olives and succulent ribs set the benchmark high for The View's mouth-watering house burger and seafood platter. The burgers are beautifully presented and are, of course, homemade with local beef and seasoned with a secret ingredient that certainly raises them above the ordinary. A lovely touch was the piping-hot, crispy fries served in a seaside bucket. At £14.95, the sharing seafood platter was excellent value for money and featured potted crab, prawns, smoked salmon and mussels accompanied by the tastiest garlic bread.

Our meal came to a close with a fabulous choice of yummy desserts. I chose the honeycomb ginger cheesecake and my partner the angel cake - both very different but equally tempting. The ginger cheesecake had a warming spiced flavour, whilst the angel cake was, as you'd expect, heavenly. The menu is varied with something for everyone's budget and taste, from fish finger baguettes to steaks, and all age ranges are catered for. The View is just as suited to a family party as to a cosy coffee and chat - if you're anywhere nearby, make sure you go and enjoy The View, in both senses of the word
