Great to have a nice and warm pub meal when on vacation. Great drinks and wings right on the beach with friendly staff. Check hours before you get a ride there. They closed at 6 pm

It's dirty, overpriced, yet friendly & inviting in a squalid sort of way. Great place to have a few pints. Be warned though they close at 6 PM

The food was terrible and the prices were very expensive. The portions were really small and there was some kind of mystery meat with kraft cheese slices in the over priced sandwich.
