“Come on shambles!! What's happened!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Called in today for a hot choc & cappachino. We always look forward to chillin in shambles and today we sat on your outside terrace. Great views over the harbour in the sunshine - just a shame the hot drinks were nasty. So nasty we left them. Also your staff needed waking up. Both bar staff looked hung over!!! It won't stop us coming but you need to pick up the pace. We went to a lovely cafe about 300yards away and had amazing hot drinks.

“Lovely view of sunset across harbour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Quite a big building, popular. Only called in for a drink but looked like food was going down well. Sat on balcony and watched the sun go down.

“And what a shambles it is.....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We spotted the Shambles from the other side of the harbour and from the outside it looked nice with the oppportunity to even sit out on the balcony. We stopped by for a coffee later in the afternoon - big mistake. My cappuchino was just like a latte with chocolate on the top that made it look like the milk had turned - no froth on top at all. The bar area had a damp smell to it and was not very clean. The staff did not come across as very friendly either so I didn't even feel comfortable to complain. Needless to say I left the drink and left this place dissappointed . :-(

“Harbour side pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

It's a nice out of the way little pub. Very nice inside and for the brave there is a balcony which overlooks the harbour entrance. Good service, nice food and decent selection of drinks. Food could be better value but not by much.
