We went here twice whilst holidaying on the island. Both times I had the roast dinner (lamb and then beef the following time) and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. Friendly staff and good, home cooking. The raspberry cheesecake is a must!

I apologise that the pub was not in tip top condition when you visited. Our tables are quite old and are getting revarnished soon, so hopefully this will improve the stickiness of them. I hope to see you return at a later date. Thank you...More

Dark pub. Sticky table. Many specials not available. We had fish and chips. Chips were cheap frozen ones. Not very nice. The batter was good however the fish was not nice. Certainly will not return.More
