So it was a sunny Spring day with a chilly wind and we decided to take a drive past the seaside. As we did so we discovered this pub and decided to give it a try. There is a bar and a restaurant area with ample tables outside some of which overlook the sea. We opted to sit in the bar area and enjoy the sea views. They stock real ales as well as a wide range of bottled beers and ciders. The menus consist of light meals (sandwiches,baguettes, bowl of chips etc) to main courses (Gammon egg and chips, various burgers, pie of the day and quite a few others). There is also a blackboard which has a few specials. I noted they had cottage pie as well as steak and kidney homemade pie amongst the selection. I opted for the latter and my wife had a chicken and bacon burger with chips. The portions are generous enough so that my even my wife's sweet tooth wasn't enough to try the dessert menu. My pie was delicious. I had it with new potatoes which were cooked just right (some pubs tend to overlook them). The vegetables consisted of small portions of carrots, squash and cabbage. Nothing special about the veggies. We weren't there long when the pub began to fill up. We got the impression that this was the local for several senior citizens and noticed a few meeting up in the restaurant area and other just sitting around the bar chatting whilst others seemed to be enjoying the day out with their adult kids. It's a friendly place with friendly staff. Whilst settling up I overheard the manager on the phone apologising as they were fully booked that (Saturday) evening. It's a solid pub with lively chatter, friendly staff and good food. The total bill for a pint of ale, a pint of bottled cider, burger and a pie with a latte and a coffee came to less than £30. Recommended.
