“Great menu and the food is delicious”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We have eaten here many times over the last three years and have always found the food to be of a high calibre. Jerome the chef is French and this is so noticeable in the menu with the occasional traditional French dish making its way onto the menu. Local produce is used where possible and I understand that the chef himself sometimes goes out on the boats to get the catch !!! Dawn the manageress is wonderful and runs the bar and restaurant exceptionally efficiently. Good choice of wines, beers and spirits. Best to book if you don't want to be disappointed or want a long wait. Fridays and Saturdays are always booked up well in advance. A lot of local people drink and eat here and the atmosphere is good and on Sunday evenings there is usually live music and many people congregate outside. Definitely worth a visit.

“Fabulous food”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

A great menu with beatifully presented fresh local produce. This really is a pub worth visiting - best meal out we have had in a long time! The Ox Cheek and Rib Eye come highly recommended!

“Wonderful Restaurant”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Okay, this is the cutest, tastiest place you can eat in.
It's small, cozy, near the ocean. The food is mid range price and tastes wonderful.

“OK”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

i found this to have no atmosphere, had to wait nearly 20mins for coffee to arrive! Did have food, and it was very nice, but i think the customer service was poor and they are relying on the fact that they have a sea view

“Trading off a glorious position”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Lunch time visit. Apart from the friendly waitress the staff were unwelcoming.
Food not brilliant, was served the wrong meal (what I was given wasn't even featured on the menu that day).
Shame as we're local and have been disappointed twice now.
Having said that would go back for a few drinks with friends on a sunny day as it is beautifully presented and in a great place.
