The menu is very good for pub grub and the view across Lyme Bay is magnificent, especially on a clear day. Well worth a visit if you are walking around the area and... More

Friendly, good value for money and lovely nautical theme. Our friends stayed 2 nights in the rooms there and have nothing but praise for them. We went to their room and it certainly had the "WOW" factor.

Visited the Buccaneer twice during a winter break. We received a very warm welcome on both occasions and the meals served were all of a very high standard and good value good money. The fish and sea food was really nice and we look forward to returning later in the year.

Found this pub by chance and it's a great find. Dog friendly, child friendly, clean and spacious with some extremely friendly staff. Haven't yet eaten there, but the menu and restaurant setting looks lovely and am sure it would be worth every penny. We will be back!!
