Lovely place to visit for the evening, slightly small but nice tasty food and polite friendly staff, parking is a slight problem but there is some parking on the road at the top, but please don’t let this deter you.More

It's well worth the short walk away from the high street and jettys up a little hill to find this pub. Listed in the good beer guide with superb views over the estuary. Dining as well if you're interested.
