Good beer: local selection, good wine list, good pub grub, plenty of cosy space, looks after families well with kids menu and toys. In summary, its a well run pub. Worth a visit if you're local or visiting the cliff top.

We had a one night stay in the superior double room. Basic but comfortable. Above the pub but wasn't a problem as the bed was probably the best we slept in a hotel, very very comfy bed!!!! Food was nice in the pub and good value. Very nice staff. A1

Very friendly helpful staff. Lovely cup of tea and good value menu. The club sandwich was very tasty. The rest of the menu looked equally good judging by the fare the rest of the lunchtime crowd were enjoying.Nice garden at the front of the pub looking out to sea from the top of the clifftop.

We stayed for 2nights over the weekend and used the room as a base. We paid £45 per night which included breakfast for both of us, meaning the room was technically £35 for the night. Rooms are basic, a little outdated but you have everything you need. En suite facilities, clean bedding and towels, wardrobe and TV, plus tea and... More

Six of us went for a meal last night - overall the food was okay (5/10) but the pork escalopes looked like they had been reheated and the vegetarian risotto was really bland. It took nearly 2 hours to have a two course meal the service got worse as more people arrived which is a pity.The tables looked like they... More

came here last summer, a bit late leaving review sorry. Food was OK but the place could do with an upgrade in a few areas. Not sure whether it is busy all year but was busy when we visited. outside space was good.

Staff were friendly and accommodating but I count that as a basic. Coffee cups in room dirty, room a bit grubby around the edges and not particularly comfortable. Food quite bad. Breakfast burnt and greasy. Disappointing all round.

We live locally and visit regularly but I'm afraid to say it will be the last time we eat here. We popped in today for lunch. We have found on our last couple of visits the food has been disappointing but today is the last time we will eat here, the menu is quite appealing but presentation and quality are... More

We were staying nearby and I'd researched places to eat, and as we were on a bit of a budget this place looked quite nice. Accidentally drove past it at first, so turned round and came back. First view of the pub was the conservatory area which from the outside looked busy and condensated. We entered the pub and tried... More
