One of the few places not being refurbished but still great. Do miss the fish chowder they used to do but the lamb I had was one of the best ever. Wife had fish and chip. Fish was really nice, shame the peas or tartar were not homemade. Always had good times here and this was no exception

1/1/2016. New year's day - early evening. After a day of heavy rain, this glorious dog friendly harbour town still as enchanting.

Excellent and friendly staff made a stay at this fantastic hotel a real pleasure. On top of that, the food was excellent, really well presented with big portions. My room was also great, clean and comfortable with a very good sized bathroom.

This is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location, with very friendly and helpful staff. The food is really good and there is a good choice of beer.

Very efficient and helpful manager made our stay enjoyable. On walking holiday, good breakfast, and packed lunches, and rooms whilst not being uplifting were quiet and clean. If you do happen to want retribution on a friend ask for room 15, which was truely depressing and stank of damp, we swapped into a nice alternative and all the other rooms... More

Popped in for a spot of lunch on a day trip. Food was good and served in very good time. Looked like a good venue for sports. A Wales fan in the house! Lots of seating inside and out. Staff very friendly and courteous.

Visited a couple of times this year and was pleased both times. This is a nicely sized pub/ restaurant /hotel, with a pleasant atmosphere. The staff were friendly and the food was lovely. The outside seating is nice, or move inside for the colder weather.

3 generations of the family went here for an evening meal. a great selection for the youngest to the oldest, and a good array of fish dishes. The food here shows that yu don't have to go to expensive celebrity owned premises for goo food and surroundings
