Description: Under new management. Formerly known as Barrel O Beer & The Seafood platter. Now its reverted back to a pleasant traditional village pub with excellent ale and lager, darts board and 3 televisions that you can sit and watch a good footy match. Also good food available from 12:00pm till 14:30pm and then again 18:00pm till 20:30pm. Dogs are welcome in the pub at any time. Change in license will be happening soon, so the pub will be staying open for longer.

We visited just after Christmas. We live locally and hadn't been since the name change. The food was excellent. We had two whole crab, two sea bream, oysters. Some things were not available on the menu but that was understandable given the Christmas period. The service was good , particularly the Polish guy. I don't think the owner was there. It was a bit more expensive than other pubs/restaurants in the area but not expensive for the food we had. Good to have a choice of local beers. The only criticism is that it's still very much a pub rather than a seafood restaurant so in my opinion it could do with a refurb and more ambient lighting. I don't think the decor does justice to the quality of food or price. But some people might like the olde worlde look. The other odd thing was that they couldn't do an Irish coffee due to not having the facilities or ingredients ... But in all a nice evening with excellent food.

The waiter was a hoot! Everyone in the restaurant knew each other. We had our bon voyage dinner here, and wished we had eaten here sooner.

What a lovely relaxing place to have a meal and drink in the small fishing village of beer, it's like stepping back in time. Don't allow children under 5 so a bonus if trying to get away from the kids!
Great food great choice of drinks partially old ales and a great welcome. Very friendly.

Lunchtime and the 4 of us were looking for a "light bite". We went in and, although it was very quiet it looked interesting. I had mussels and my partner had risotto. Our friends had sandwiches, one crab and one ham. My mussels were excellent, fat and juicy in a creamy sauce. My partner said her risotto was the 'best ever'. Our friends were happy with their sandwiches. The manager is definitely a 'one-off'. Will visit again.
