Walked in without booking, clean and pleasant bar area with various areas to sit and eat. Ordered food which came very quickly, very fresh and tasty ploughman's and a fish platter. Will have to come back to try evening menu.

We visited here in December for a friends wedding and I can't recommend it enough. It has a very relaxed nautical feel. Staff are really welcoming and helpful. Probably the best pub in this area.
