Had a fantastic meal here whilst staying at the fantastic Twitchen farm b&b.

Went as a family of five and plenty to choose from. The menu is varied with good traditional pub dishes and a few other little treats.

Everyone enjoyed their meals, with awards going to Thai muscles for staters, Lamb shank as the main and tied for pudding was the crumble and toffee pudding.

Some good real ale, nice beer garden with childrens play area and dogs welcome inside and out.

Visited twice recently and on both occasions the food was excellent. Very tasty and very good value for money. Would have no hesitation in recommending, well worth a visit.

We went midweek whilst on holiday. There's not a huge choice of places to go unless you want to go into the holiday towns but this probably offers as good a choice & quality of food as anywhere. its not large and a little bit of a squeeze in the restaurant area but it is also dog friendly in the bar area where you can eat too.
The choice was all from a blackboard and everything was cooked to order with fresh fish options on special. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals and would recommend here although its a bit off the beaten track.
