This pub is very noisy and small but entertainment every night. Reasonable prices for drinks. Could do with more comfortable chairs. Has outside seating for the summer.

Stopped off here after a walk along the sea front and watched the sun going down with a lovely pint of Cider in our hands. What could be better. Food was good and the service was excellent considering it was very busy.
