We have been meaning to try this place for ages as we have heard lots of good reviews from friends. After a lovely dog walk on the beach on a cold january mid week day we decided to give it a go. Although the pub wasn't very busy (it was about 1.45pm) there were still enough tables occupied to give... More

We found this place on Trip Advisor so planned a long walk to the pub for sunday lunch. Although the pub was very busy food, service and atmosphere were brilliant. So much so that we decided to book again and bring our friends. 2nd visit was as good as the first.

Had a very plesent stay here and loved the food, staff were all very helpful and pleased to help. Next time I'm back ill chose a different room though as there was a bit of noise from fan and cooler system, Sebastia I didn't complain about this as everything else was great.

My wife and I returned after our last visit to see if it was as good as the last time, this time to see santa with the children. We weren't disappointed! Amazing staff, amazing pub and outstanding food. I think this place will have to become our local from now on. OUTSTANDING!!!!

Went for lunch for my birthday with my husband and dog. Lovely staff really friendly and funny. We shared a starter of tempura prawns which were very filling, wasn't keen on the wasabi mayo but that's just preference. My husband had the pork Sunday dinner which looked lovely. I had the seafood chowder which was massive, serves in a paella... More
