Came out for impromptu meal for 3. Had space available and ordered a good basic pub type meal. Food was very good and portions are plentiful. Excellent value for money. Good service too from friendly waiting staff. All very relaxed. Not gastropub but an excellent value and tasty pub grub.

A bit rough and ready but the Service was their strong point. We had steak pie and a pizza. Chips a bit undercooked. Nice coffee to finish.

Visited twice in a week. Great beer garden will a good mix of young and old people. Full sun or shade whichever you prefer. Just had drinks the first time, reasonable price. Second time we had food too. Of all 6 people in the party everyone enjoyed their food. Fresh and tasty. Free WiFi and friendly service. Dog friendly.

Went here with my kids for drinks and potentially a meal. The beer garden was overrun with kids going absolutely nuts - I have my own so I know how they can be, but these were climbing on tables, up the stairs to the roof, shouting, chucking balls about. It was similar inside, so we didn't eat. Not really the... More

We stopped off after a long walk along Woolacombe beach and were lucky enough to catch a musician in their beer garden. Drinks were reasonably priced and the atmosphere was great.

Comfortable clean outdoor seating area, beer and food tasty enough. Service a little slow, but who minds that when you're on holiday and chillin'. Prices mid-range. A good pitstop rather than a must-see.
