Well it is certainly hidden away and probably just as well as it's small but very rustic, homely and cosy. Crowds of people would swamp it! Lovely view right from the cliff top. Nice ales. Great welcoming staff. Had a lovely Sunday lunch, beautifully cooked....More

Stumbled across this place while walking. Stopped for a drink and snack. Liked it so much, came back on same day for dinner. What a wonderful location... but better is the warm, friendly, fun atmosphere created inside. So family friendly... homely

A splendid place to stop for a pot of tea whilst traversing the coastal path. Also it is a nice place to have a pint in evening as well...
