Decent beer and a good selection of ciders are always available. The food has improved heaps since i was last here. The steak pie or fish and chips are always a good standard selection. .But always check the boards for specials

The homemade pie was delicious. A lovely atmosphere and great views. If you was a table with sea view you probably need to book it.

Always a pleasure visiting this lovely restaurant - will views out to the sea to top it off. Food is slightly dearer than normal pub grub but the quality is always great. Definitely one to try.
