What a lovely, homely pub. Cracking burgers, great variety, great value and good portions. Lovely, friendly staff. Would recommend a visit. Right opposite some lovely sea views on the Babbacombe downs.

Great food at a very good price, had braised liver & onions, wife had a steak and both were well cooked, tasted superb and all for under £20. Also we had our little west highland terrier with us, bring him in they said, dogs are better than some people. First class all round.

Good range of wholesome tasty pub food with selection of fresh vegetables. Allowed to bring our well behaved dog in too. As it was a hot day this was very welcome, didn't want to leave her in the car. Staff friendly, liked the ambience of this pub.
