If you are walking to or from the beach you are bound to pass the Grampus, and for us it has been a mandatory stop for refreshment before going on up the hill. Pub dates from 16th Century. Location is lovely with large tranquil garden....More

Visited today for lunch and it took nearly an hour for food to come. Others who came in after us were served before us. Very dark inside and a bit scruffy and run down. When food arrived it was ok. Good portion size but not...More

This is a little gem hidden away. You wouldn’t even notice it if it weren’t for the pub sign as there are no windows on to the street. To get in to it you walk through car park which looks like lots have cars have...More
