Don't go for the hype. Even though the pub is on the beach that is where the positives end. Food and drink are over priced and food is average. Far better pub in the town only a 5 min walk away.More

Unless it it a very high tide you can walk across from the car park over the bridge. During a high tide you can access The Watering Hole from our access road which is behind the venue.
