This is a very nice scenic bar on the end of the pier near the lighthouse, very nice food and drinks all on the pier.

Lovely atmospheric bar with fab views over the beach. Cosy sofa area at the end with huge glass windows. Wood burning stove that must be lovely in winter. Great place to spend and hour reading and drinking coffee.

We had few beers & snacks here and really enjoyed our time. Nice relaxed ambiance. Great staff, very cheerful. Good view of the beach. We heard they prepared good cocktails but were out of supply. Bad luck for us but next time. Good bar.

So many beer and ciders available from the cask/box. Sawdust on the floor and local characters added to the charm of this restaurant. No real menu, but I was drawn in by the sidewalk chalkboard offering pie and mash...what could be better? The vegetarian pie...More
