We did well to get a seat and a meal at this very popular pub. It opened at six, and by seven there really wasn't much room for any more diners. The pub doesn't take bookings so go early on a Saturday and be prepared to wait a little while for your meal. The food itself was very tasty, and there was a good variety of meals on the menu and board. Well worth the walk up the hill from Portscatho.
There seemed to be a good mix of regulars and visitors, and the atmosphere was great. Would have stayed longer if we didn't have a bus to catch back to our B&B.
