Just love a high tea knowing all those scones, tea & cakes to look forward to after a hearty meal and enough time to digest before bed. Great offer and tables outside weather allowing Al fresco. We opted for steak pie & fish & chips and both great with excellent portion sizes.

Stopped here for a meal after a long day of touring. My son had lamb shank for dinner, I had fish. The meals were simple. I feel both the dining area and food were average. It was a simple pub in a lovely seaside community.

Old hotel with good sized rooms. Staff were very welcoming, the locals frequent the bar and are happy to engage in conversation. Breakfast included. Fruit, cereals, porridge and cooked. Quite warm when we were there and no cooling.

Had two very good meals at this hotel. Wide choice available on the menu and specials board and all reasonably priced. I had the lamb shank which was excellent. One draft ale available. Staff are friendly and helpful.

The hotel could do with an update and a bit more professionalism. The towels were not changed after three days and neither was the bed linen. In fact the bed linen was still the same after 7 days.The bathroom was tiny with some mould around the bath. The breakfast, while okay, could have a greater assortment including some non-fat options... More

Three of us had an evening meal here. We reserved a table in advance and were pleased to be given a lovely table in the window. Service was very prompt but also very patient with our dithering. We just couldn't decide what to have from the extensive menu! My trout with almonds was of a good size, nicely cooked and... More

I stayed for four nights and couldn't have felt more comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful, especially with my dietary requirements (dairy allergy). The chef adapted meals from the main menu to accommodate my requirements, whilst still ensuring they were delicious! I will definitely stay again
