The view

The back area which looks out onto the beach bumped it up to a 4 otherwise it would be a solid 3/5 just because its a typical pub, sticky floors that sort of thing but a great place to grab a beer & look out onto the beach

Great spot and cheap drinks but the place looked tired and grubby, I didn't fancy eating there. Great location, right on the beach.
