Yet again we were welcomed back like old friends/family by Linda, Paul & Frank. The drink quality and prices were excellent. Unfortunately being all inclusive we didn't try the food but everything looked good and the aroma was tantalising, perhaps we will go self catering next time!

Had two meals here on my Holiday, home made steak pie and mash. Really good! Only problem was the daytime waiter who was miserable, and looked like someone Clint shot up in those spaghetti westerns. Rude, ignorant and very seedy! Spoilt the whole experience!

On walking in this so called British pub it reminded me of an old eighties pub dated along with the food, pubs back home have moved on and have a much more european feel those that didn't change have closed unfortunately not a place I would go back to.

This place serves a great English Breakfast and in a great spot along the main route to the dunes so you can watch everyone go by as you eat! The service is good too!
