Varied menu, with lots of fish. We went back a second time because it was very close to our hotel, but found the portions overgenerous and had to leave quite a lot. A pity because we don't like wasting food and there was nothing wrong...More

A real ale pub with good beers served by very friendly staff. Food was excellent, especially fish, and the ambience delighted all. One could see why it was full of locals.

My partner and I visited on the first night of our holiday. We enjoyed it so much that we made a return visit. I had lobster which was excellent. The pub was very busy so would recommend booking.

The Captains is best described as an Inn with rooms, all 9 en suite bedrooms have been recently re-carpeted and are equipped with tv, tea and coffee facilities and complimentary toiletries.
The bar attracts locals and visitors alike and you are guaranteed lively banter around the bar area.
Whilst the bistro and bar area serves traditional bar meals, the Captains has gained a reputation in recent years for their Seafood dishes and the freshest of local fish. Reservations are not always necessary but to avoid disappointment it is suggested at the weekends and the busy summer months.
