We loved this pub. What's not to like about a dining room right on the water's edge? We had tasty food and excellent service from staff that were really friendly and helpful. They even moved us to the best table in the restaurant, when one became available, so that we could enjoy the lovely sea view. The bar has a... More

My Fish Medley was wonderful and my dining companion found the Baked Cod stuffed with Prawns the best meal ever had in a pub. I cannot recommend this pub... More

From the outside the pub looked pleasant, we realised the dogs weren't allowed to go into the pub so we walked around the side.

We came across this pub by accident but what a lovely accident. At the back, there are picnic tables looking out to sea. Fish cakes, nice pint of local beer and flat calm sea made this one of our holiday highlights.
