What a great pub with a unbeatable view of the bright and busy harbour in the front and a cheeky little garden that is a sun trap at the back.

First visit we had the burgers and on our second visit it was the fish packets, which were excellent and reasonably priced. Limited real ale selection though.

We sat by the window and looked out over the harbour with St Michaels mount in the background. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and made our family feel welcome. The food was extremely good value with fresh fish from the local fishermen and the puddings were delicious too.It has a real traditional, local feel to it.
