The weather was glorious during our week long stay, we called in to have drinks and snacks most afternoons and enjoyed the outside seating areas.

I had pea and ham soup which was homemade and although I could neither taste nor see any ham, it was pleasant. My husband had goats cheese which he... More

Dropped in for lunch here, I had the scampi followed by home made cheesecake which was lovely. Wife had the rib eye steak followed by assortment of ice creams. Both really enjoyed the meal and the price was pretty reasonable to.

Add to that friendly and professional services from Jude the manager, mouth-watering food and a stunning harbour view from the dining area, this place is a real gem! We spent one night there, having arrived in... More

The bedrooms were faultless and breakfast in the morning really good (although no choice between white or brown toast- white was served without question- strange I thought). Friendly staff, idyllic setting.

On leaving idle staff hanging around bar were quite complacent as we walked out and told them we would go elsewhere. A very... More

We have stayed here in the past as part of a group of sea anglers going out with Dom on "Predator 2", a super fishing boat moored in the harbour just a few yards from the hotel. We stayed in the house the pub uses for larger groups but we all ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant which was... More
