Ate here with 3 friends on a fairly busy Saturday lunchtime. We all ate mains from the specials board and we're all very pleased with our choices. 3 of our party had cheeseboard after (I opted for a chocolate brownie) and we were pleasantly surprised by the plate that arrived for £5. The choice of beer is excellent and the... More

Lovely local, lovely beer, good atmosphere, friendly staff, locals and dogs. Didn't eat but the food looked good. In the summer it must be lovely with lots of tables on the seafront

Heard that the fish and chips here were brilliant but was bitterly disappointed. The chips were ok, nothing special, whereas the fish had a strange taste. You could taste that it was frozen. The batter on it was nice but it did not help to mask the horrible freezer taste. Not to mention it was ridiculously overpriced, 10 pounds for... More

Great food in the summer but Christmas pretty awful. Stick to outside eating, particularly cod and chips can't go wrong. Christmas menu avoid

Have just had a nice evening ruined by our visit here. We are hosting a French student who wanted to try fish and chips so we thought how nice it would be to take her here for a real English pub experience as the location is lovely. On entering, my husband was immediately told that there was no space by... More

The service was quite slow last weekend when we visited (especially with children in the party) but the food was worth waiting for. My seafood stew was the best I have tasted and we had a lovely view of the river too.

Had Saturday lunch here with the grandchildren. We had a corner seat overlooking the river which we requested when booking. Despite being very busy, the service was fast and friendly. The seafood salad was enormous, with two types of salmon, smoked haddock, prawns,anchovies and lashings of brown bread and butter. The local beer was excellent.
