Amazing burgers and goujons, outdoor seating area was covered and well spread apart from other groups. It was a cold evening so we layered up and brought hot water bottles and we were cosy then!

I cannot recommend The Dunes highly enough! The best food locally and excellent, friendly, professional service! We had burgers and speciality fries...AMAZING!!!! We dined for our anniversary with our 1 year old. We had a lovely big table outside where our son could play next to our table. Cannot wait to go back again!
Thank you so much!!!!

The Dunes is a great place to go after an active day out. Great food, lovely people, interesting music and great range of craft beers and coffee is good too (I believe - I am not a coffee drinker myself). Very well organised in terms of Covid restrictions also. So very enjoyable evening.

Imaginative menu that hits the spot. We had the tastiest meal here- the chicken burger is delicious- all of our group really enjoyed their different burgers too. We ordered a host of food from the menu- lots of different burgers, chicken nuggets with garlic and parmesan, chips with different toppings. Really a higher level burger and chips dining experience. They have added salads to the menu too- I guess I will have to come back for those - yay!!!

I eat a lot of chicken burgers.

I've never had a better burger than the Dunes' Lumberjack. Absolutely wolfed it down. Heaven.

Friendly staff, fast service. Great music playlist.

All the stars.

Very good experience. Staff were excellent and very attentive, friendly and helpful. Meal was very tasty but the menu is sadly lacking in truly gluten free options hence only 3 stars. Restrictions due to Covid 19 were very evident and adequate precautions were in place. Altogether a pleasant experience.
