Surprisingly great food - we will surely be returning

We ended up at the Jolly Fisherman as we were too early to eat at the restaurant across the road and with a little one in tow we couldn't wait for food. What luck ! The restaurant was fully booked, however, after a short wait and drinks standing at the bar we managed to get a table. The food... read more

Lovely old local pub with excellent views of the village and harbour. Food good with wide range from full meals to sandwiches. Very clean and staff friendly.

The location of this pub is spot on, especially on a sunny day whenyou can sit in the beer garden overlooking the sea. We sat inside today with our two dogs. The place was bursting with people. The lady behind the bar told me it had been like that since February and Robson Green had a lot to answer to!!... More

I was so looking forward to this meal. A walk across the field from the holiday cottage to a local pub that specialised in fish sounded great. As we entered the place the atmosphere was lively and it seemed convivial. The beer selection was rather unadventurous - not much from the locality - but decent enough. But that was before... More

Loved everything about this place. The view, the excellent, attentive and friendly staff, and the food which was fresh, flavoursome and beautifully presented. Will definitely return. If I had to find a negative, it would be that the starters were a bit on the pricey side, so would recommend(at least for females) to share as the portions were ample.

Food really fresh and tasty - avoid the overlooked chips cooked in beef dripping. Crab particularly tasty. Service indifferent.
