“Excellent Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We had lunch there on Monday, The place was rather empty for a bank holiday, But people don't know what they are missing,it was excellent
There was a good range on the menu, something for everyone, I had the smoked salmon and prawn salad, I have never had a salad where I ran out of salad before the fish, There was two large rolls of smoked salmon, a portion of small prawns, a portion of large prawns, and two king prawns on top.
My husband had Scampi and chips and there was also a large portion of Scampi. The chips were very good (i had 1 or 2).
My husband was rather pleased as they serve real ale, he said it was a good well kept pint.
I can't wait to go back.

I am sorry you had a less than perfect meal with us, If our staff had been informed of your problems with your meal I am sure we would have put things right for you, I hope this does not effect your choice to dine with us again.

“" Good pub , great food , friendly staff "”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This pub has a view to die for overlooking the sea , food and service pretty good too !

Have eaten lunch here a few times , i recommend the risotto and I love the little bottles of prosecco they have .

Always a friendly welcome with great food and service , would recommend booking as often quite busy especially with locals , which speaks volumes !
