Friendly service, delicious food and you can't beat that location! Good selection of ales and ciders. Sup a pint and stare out to sea. On a clear day you can see France.

Managed to book at fairly short notice for a Friday, but had to eat early and be away as table rebooked from 8 pm. Not a problem at all, the service was polite and very efficient. The pub gets very busy with locals ( who perhaps resent the diners from outside?) and quite noisy. We found the best table in... More

We were visiting the area and decided to stop in for some lunch. It being a sunny day over the easter bank holiday it was very busy. Luckily we were able to get a bench on the beach, and some food ordered. The setting is second to none, on a pleasant day like there is nothing better than sitting on... More

Lovely location. Staff very friendly and efficient. Portions huge. Food distinctly average. But good points outweigh so we would visit again.

I had this Pub recommended to a friend when I told him I was going away for the weekend with my fianceé. We decided to pay it a visit and booked a table for Saturday lunch. We arrived an hour early so we asked if there was a table free. The server went of to make the enquiry. Whilst we... More

This is a lovely pub in a fantastic location on the beach with smashing views. I had fish chowder which was delicious and had lots of fish and veg, not just a load of soup with a few bits in. My wife had the home made quiche which she loved. Indoors space is limited but there is plenty of seating... More

Went here for an evening meal after numerous visits prior to this one. It never lets us down. The food was absolutely delicious . We had a steak, and the chicken pie. Puddings were equally as good and the cheesecake is scrummy. The waiting staff were all very polite and there was a great atmosphere.

Two of us stopped here for lunch today. The setting is beautiful but the fish chowder that we had was very disappointing indeed. The broth was thin and didn't have much flavour or depth to it at all and the fish content was very uninteresting to say the least.

We booked a table for 4 for dinner on a Saturday evening when staying in Kingsdown with friends. This is a great pub, on the beach. The menu was good - lots of fresh seafood, chciken and a couple of vegetarian options and a specials board. I had the skate - it was a great portion, very well cooked and... More
