Went here as it seemed to have some good reviews as a family pub with good food. How wrong!! We were stuck in a very noisy area of the pub right by the kids soft play area. Yes we had children with us but the kids that were there were just excessively noisy and bad mannered. Not what you really... More

Great food and right next door to the caravan site we were staying at. If you're looking for a cosy warm welcome,you'll get it here. There is also a play area for the kiddies. There are meal deals on for each night of the week,so look out for those.

I went with my daughter and her friend. I had the steak which was the nicest steak I have ever had. My daughter had the carbonara and her friend had the Caesar salad. Both enjoyed their meals so much they asked to come back for dinner the following night. I found all the staff very friendly and the only thing... More

It was raining and not very busy when we visited. It's clean and spacious, with a large car park and garden. Staff were friendly and food good. Well worth a visit if you are in the area and in need of a refuel.

Eat here a few times when on holiday as the food was GREAT!!! Best pub we visited on the Island and great entertainment for the kids too. Has a small issue with one meal when there (however was in a group of 20+) and the Deputy Manager's Customer Service was better than I expected, would highly recommend a visit.

We phoned here at short notice to see if they could fit 10 of us in and they were very helpful. Staff were very friendly and food was excellent. Shame we hadn't discovered this place earlier in our holiday because they definitely would have seen us more than once!
