“Vegetarian food on the Wales Coast Path”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Couple of choices on the menu - we had a Brie & courgette crumble and a welsh goat cheese & butternut squash lasagne, both served with new potatoes and peas. Good quality ingredients, good flavours and presentation and reasonable portion sizes. Had a pint at the bar to start with and a friendly chat with the locals.

“Ok if you're a local yokal”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Pretty horrid place unless you're a local. We obviously didn't look the part or speak the language. We only went in for a drink but were made to feel unwelcome. Defiantly wouldn't go in for a meal.

“Amazing value good service”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

We came here for a meal after spending the day in the harbour area. The food was really good for the price I had a steak which was better than pub grub for pub grub prices. The service was really good and quick. The beer was tasty and a good price. It outshines many eateries local to it at twice the price.

“Best View and That's All”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We're staying in cottage next door so would have spent a fair bit of money and time in here had they been friendlier......popped in on first day of our hols for afternoon drink and felt so out of place. Not welcoming at all.....and felt like intruders. Tried again later in week for a meal and staff/landlord rude and unwelcoming. Must not need cash from tourists I suppose........Would not recommend and would not visit again......
