Always been pretty happy with food served here - it's standard pub grub but it's ok - however having booked a pre-theatre time did expect to get served in good time for the show - waited well over an hour to be served which would have been fine had it been Cordon Bleu but this was pretty standard food and...

I went here a couple of months back and the food was gorgeous. I had lasagne and it was the nicest I've ever had. Great drinks. Great beer. And a lovely garden to sit in and look over the lovely view of the bay. Staff are friendly. A lovely elder lady served us and she was ever so kind and... More

We sat outside in the beer garden to have drinks. Unfortunately their pimms was not great (lack of fruits and cucumber...) but the food was lovely and served very quickly. The beer garden has a play area for children, so that would be a bonus for the parents out there. The inside of the pub is very spacious. The staff... More

Beautiful setting. Wonderful views and flower displays. Staff could not be more polite and attentive. We have never been disappointed with the food, it is always well presented, hot and tastes delicious. Well done to a good team who are obviously passionate about food and customer service. Highly recommended.

We ate here the other evening and had a pleasant meal. Service was good as was the beer. We both had a sizzles meal on a hot platter which was fine though the meat became a little over done as it cooked on. Decent prices will come again.

Quite good food and extensive pub menu. Good choice of beers. Major downside is very limited parking in the car park and very restricted kerbside parking.
