Thank goodness we booked a table, the place was full apart from our reserved spot for eight. Immediately seated and drinks orders taken we had to make difficult decisions on food. The menu is full of gorgeous options which got all juices going and a tough choice to make. Well three steaks, three pork tenderloin with black pudding and a... More

There’s a rather irritating tv ad doing the rounds at the moment for a national hotel brand where the voiceover suggests that you, inter alia, “take the kids” or “don’t take the kids”. We feel the latter certainly applies to this sumptuous little gem, a foodies heaven complete with cosy bedrooms and a bustling, hound-friendly bar where both locals and... More

This is a very quaint hotel/pub with lots of character in a picturesque village. The location is ideal, right next to the sea front. The room we had booked overlooked the harbour and was extremely spacious and very well furnished. We had our evening meal in the restaurant which was very good and offered a wide range of options.

I arrived here at short notice, a refugee from a damaged tent. The room was smal but beautiful, and the bed more comfy than my bed at home. Great location, friendly staff, and the food was excellent too. I'm definitely going back.
