Ate here yesterday with my missus. Was really good food. I had the homemade burger it was full of flavour and a decent price. I like the pubs traditional feel and it was nice and cozy with the wind howling outside. Served by polite people and will definitely revisit in the near future.

Wonderful situation and good for a drink after work, pleasant young bar staff and have heard reports of good food,in summer and weekends best to book as gets crowded(especially if weather inclement) Good to see locals as well as tourists and yachties patronise so good mixture ,have been a quiet occasional regular for 30+years.
