“Superb food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

A traditional looking pub right on the harbor. The food, all locally sourced was really tasty. We had the muscles and crab slate both of which were some of the best sea food we have ever had. Price wise some of the food is a bit pricey. We paid £45 for 2 mains plus 2 drinks each so not bad.All the staff came across very friendly and attentive. We would recommend you try it.

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

A very popular pub/restaurant that my boyfriend and I just happened to stumble into. The inside was like a local pub with very interesting local history around the place. However, the food was not your usual pub grub, very expensive but very tasty and beautifully made. Gets very busy and you can't book so expect to have to wait and get there early!!

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

We were unable to get a table in the restaurant but ate in the bar as it has the same menu. The food was great, so much so we ate there twice over the long weekend! We tried the whitebait, prawns, mussels and the steak and it was all very good. Would highly recommend if you are staying in the area.

Food was average for a pub restaurant but frankly could have done without the choice of piped music .

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Arrived without a reservation on a Saturday evening and the place was very busy but they served us an oyster platter on the bar to keep us going until a table became free. Seafood was delicious. Atmosphere very friendly.
