The food here is great. Top notch seafood platter. The jewel in the crown was the friendly and polite service. Our waitress (Phoebe) was an utter delight - a true English rose. Go here for the food and the service!

Small but comfortable room. Fantastic meal on our 1st night - locally sourced food. Staff very friendly. Loved the picnic hamper for breakfast concept. Will definitely be back.

Service was good and it was a very pleasant environment however the food was disappointing. Several items on the menu where not available, the meat had too much carbon and the salad was only leaves. The chips were good. The food was poor value.

This is a cut above other pubs in the area. The menu consists of good local produce and is mediterranean in style. A little more expensive than others. but this reflects the quality of food, service and ambience so is actually value for money. A great pub - well worth a visit.

We popped in for lunch on our way to Portland. We had a crab doorstep sandwich made with fresh bread and stuffed with delicious crabmeat. We also had a portion of real. chips served freshly cooked and piping hot. Excellent!
