Although we only arrived shortly before closing time (early afternoon) we were made welcome and not rushed at all. The food was good and was served fairly quickly by their friendly staff.

Excellent pub and restaurant. Friendly staff, reasonably priced food with plenty of choices for everyone. Games room for the kids and a nice garden with coastal views. Much better than our caravan park food on offer.

We popped in for a drink and the pub seemed ok. It had one section which was freezing and dismal with outdated games. It smelt damp and was bleak. Turns out this room was the kids room. The other room was still very 80s/shabby and...More
