Greeted at the bar by a barmaid with no charm.Food ordered with another charmless barman.My god who employs these people.nice beer garden for noisy kids, if you do not like screaming children stay clear as they also go inside.

Had a meal with 2 adults and 2 children.The kids loved the outdoor space (bouncy castle, pirate ship, toddler climbing frame etc) and also the indoor ball pit/small climbing area which kept them amused while we waited for our lunch. The man at the bar was efficient and very friendly, but appeared to be doing nearly everything himself while a rather vacuous looking girl just watched him. Still, we didn't have to wait long, and had some very tasty pizzas followed by ice cream sundaes which were delicious. There's not a massive range on the menu, but enough to choose from, and clearly pizzas are a house speciality. Look out for the lunchtime special offers - it was £8.95 for my pizza and a drink (beer, wine or soft) which I thought was very good value. Shame we found this on our last day or we would have visited again.

After dining here on holiday for 7+years! the place has taken a turn for the worse! After offering 'decent' value pub food in the past, I was shocked to pay quality restaurant prices for well below average food.... Could have dined better at far better seafront restaurants with decent reputations for the price.....ie legends, the reef etc......

Had a meal with 3 adults and 2 kids. I must say the indoor soft play area with balls and climbing areas is great. The pub has a huge outdoor garden with at least 12-15 tables to chill out. There is also a bouncy castle, swing net thing and a pirate boat, and little tikes frame. Well the food that we ordered was cooked fresh and my home made steak and ale pie was out of this world. Well worth a visit. I wish we could have a pub like this back near our house.
