We visited this pub on a Monday evening. We were quickly seated as there weren't many people in. It was quite warm outside to so cant comment on it being cold. The food however was lovely. There was more than enough on my plate (had braised beef) and the quality was perfect. The only negative comment about food was my... More

Within a mile of the sea but served poorly cooked frozen fish and chips. And despite asking twice no condiments. A long wait to be served. The bar area was littered with paperwork and resembled someones home office.

Last week, we finally got around to having a meal here and it was delicious! I had the vegetarian tart, which was a layer of veg in a light, crisp filo, with... More

My wife said the curry... More

There is nothing pretencious about this pub....and yes when you arrive it is like going back in time 25 years, But once you get it into your head to just stay and try it, you will find the hospitality is good, and to be fair the menu is the oldest fashioned menu I have seen in a long while, but...

Went for Sunday lunch, should have guessed it wasn't going to be good as there was only two tables occupied. Put on a little table by a staircase, the room was freezing with no heating on. My husband asked for a Guinness and the barmaid said they didn't have any. The food was awful and barely warm, nobody came to... More

The friendly staff were very helpful. Great cooked breakfast and immaculately clean room topped of my visit. I... More

Where do I begin?! The pub is shabby and in need of a good refurbishment. The staff looked miserable, the barman was really unhelpful and kept darting out for a cigarette instead of making our drinks. We arrived just after 12:00 but had to wait about 45 min for the carvery to open because they weren't ready to start serving.... More
