Food acceptable although service can be slow. Drinks quite expensive but food reasonable. Remember to check whether your meal comes with a free drink as the staff won't remind you if you forget!

Ok pub which seemed part of a chain, a shame in a lovely little seaside village. Wide ranging menu with pub quality food and reasonable prices. Staff friendly who were happy to serve us although we were quite late.

We came wanting a straightforward family meal out so our expectations weren't high to start with. But my god, this was a shocker. Despite it not being particularly busy, it took a lifetime to get served at the bar. Only one person was capable of...More
