Had lunch in this place that seemed to have a TV mounted on every wall. Add noisy customer S drinking at the bar, it wasn't conducive to a, chat over lunch. Food was average and they don't understand what a vegetarian appreciates for food.

I'm not the biggest fan of seafood - usually. To tell the truth, I've been a bit bored with bird, cow and pig recently and have even started eating salads for a change.

A modern feel pub on the old harbour side adjacent to its parent hotel. Imaginatively named! Expect good beer and sports TV. Food is plentiful I like it.......
