This is a good place to spend some time looking at the amazing views from the beer garden and trying local drinks. The staff are very friendly.

I only popped in for one drink at 13.30 on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon and ended up leaving at midnight. What a beer garden and views of the coastline this pub has. The food is very nice and reasonably priced as well. All in all me and my partner had a great day and the atmosphere added to it.
