Over cooked pizza, the owner who was making the pizza was eating the toppings with his fingers and then making the pizzas with those same fingers. Gross. The two stars is for the lovely lady behind the bar and that is the only reason.

They have turned this previously good pub into a pizza hut: We went in to enjoy a drink and it was full of children, all they need is a play area with swings .slides etc: Did not even stay for a drink:

That said, we enjoyed two of the famous pizzas - led here as we were by the Trip Advisor recommendations, and a bottle of the local region's red.... More

While waiting for the ferry we found this little pub. The staff were super friendly and the pizzas were to die for. We were blown away by how delicious they were. I love love love the baileys slushy. I have every intention of coming back again. Thank you for a truly wonderful experience

Friendly host and great pizza. We had the Pepperoni and the BBQ Chicken. Both were really yummy! They make a different type of dough every day and when we went it was parmesan and oregano which was very tasty.
