We had a snack lunch, dinner and full English breakfast, all very well prepared and presented. The bar and kitchen staff were welcoming and very friendly. The hosts were again very... More

The pub is in a lovely location. We arrived after a walk along the coast from nearby Flockburgh. We had our two dogs with us and they were welcomed in, and we didn't have to worry about them dripping/being sandy as the floors were wooden. the whole pub, including the toilets, felt very clean. The service from the bar maid... More

We stayed for 3 nights, having never been to that part of the country before, so glad I did now. Rolling hills, tiny quaint village, no civilisation... More

A good old fashioned bar with a good selection of beer, wines and spirits. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable and our evening meal menu had a good... More

Breakfast was good and could not fault the food in the evening. Would recommend it to others and would come back again. Loved the drawings on the display wall that the children... More

What a find! Accommodation was simple but did the job. However, the food, real ale, great service and roaring log fire absolutely hit the spot. Had to be away early and was provided with a fab bacon buttie to go. Awesome

Also the location was fab, right... More

Thank you for your review. I can only apologise for the errors by the house keeper and waitress. She is new at the job and is still making a few errors. Hopefully it won't stop you visiting again if in the area. Kind regards Chris. More
