We ate an evening meal here for three evenings out of a four day break. Each evening even though the pub was busy we received good service and the food was delicious. I had the Fish stew twice it was so good!

We enjoyed dinner overlooking the sea. Recommend the crab and also the spicy monkfish was one of the best tasted. The waitress was very friendly but disappointingly the barmaid was one of the most miserable and brusque we've ever encountered and was made to feel like an intrusion on her snacking. Some customer service training wouldn't go amiss on her!...

We had a double bed, plus a sofa bed for our daughter, and there were two further armchairs, a coffee table, dressing table etc. and plenty of wardrobe space. A highlight of the room was the enormous claw-footed...
