No trip to the coast is complete without a visit to a charming seaside café, and The Fat Seagull, situated just yards from the beach, is one of the best. This dog-friendly cafe and bistro has an airy, relaxed feel, with a warm, beach-inspired colour scheme, rustic wooden benches, local artwork adorning the walls and a menu of local delights, including fantastic fresh fish and seafood.

To start, you might choose favourites such as tomato and mozzarella salad or deep-fried mushrooms, or go for something a little different and in keeping with the coastal location, as we did, and order the cracked crab claws with king prawns in white wine and garlic, and tempura king and queen scallops mornay. The mains selection truly has something for everyone - those looking to indulge in fresh fish will find the likes of grouper or whole plaice on offer, but there is also plenty to satisfy meat lovers and vegetarians too. We plumped for meaty mains of perfectly pink Welsh sliced lamb rump with roasted beetroot, crushed new potatoes, anchovies and raspberry and mint jus, and succulent chicken supreme roulade stuffed with MacSween haggis and served with roasted neeps and tatties and wholegrain mustard and whisky sauce. Despite being fit to burst, we couldn't resist sampling two of the homemade desserts - the baked black cherry cheesecake with a scoop of raspberry ripple ice cream, and the key lime pie with coconut ice cream were both simply divine. We were also impressed by the adjoining shop selling lovely gifts, homewares and jams. You can find out more about The Fat Seagull on its Facebook page
