We visited here whilst on holiday for the advertised live music. It was very good a well worth a visit. The only downside is it can get quite busy so be prepared for limited seats etc

We visited in the daytime and had a few cheeky drinks in the sunshine, then returned in the evening to watch a very good group. There is a very good large seating area at the front of the pub with plenty of large overhead heaters which are on timers so you can just press the button and they come back... More

We ordered beef stroganoff and rice. Tasty but small portion size for the price charged. Plenty of seating outside, heaters under the large umbrellas. Opposite beach.

A lovely "Olde Worlde" interior which is very welcoming. Good and reasonably priced food as well as a well stocked bar serving local ales along with more national and international brands.

We then devoured mains that were full of flavour....(King prawn spaghetti, Salmon Steak and the house burger). I enjoyed it so much I took... More
