“Excellent as always!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Looking at the prior review we found the "Latvian waitress" to be very efficient and hard working. Perhaps if you smile and speak politely and clearly you might find the same.
The food was excellent. The fish in liberation batter was fresh and light, chips hot and all beautifully presented. My choice of tempura prawns were fresh, hot, in a proper batter with a delicious garlicky mayo. We have been here many times as we sail up and down to South Brittany, never have we been disappointed and often recommended it to our friends. Look forward to the next time.

“Comedic, expensive and Poor in every way”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

A Guernsey pub where the staff are so untrained they can't even speak enough English to properly serve patrons. My wife speaks Russian fluently, but we never dreamed that we'd have to use her linguistic skills to order in a Guernsey Pub from a Latvian waitress..

Service was slow, and heralded by the warning ' I have to tell you that Peroni is £5.20 per pint' ( heard that before somewhere else this week...) Profiteering, pure and simple.


Food: Deep Fried Camembert . Usual, frozen catering tat, substantially overcooked, sat on sad iceberg lettuce that looked like it was at best yesterday. Took a bite, left the rest. 0/10, Fail.

Mian Course Scallops: 3 small scallops, rubbery, served over microwaved asparagus (overdone) and a microwaved cream sauce, complete with microwave crust as over-heated. No attempt to disguise this. 0/10 Fail

Hand cut chunky chips defy description. Inedible, not fresh and fir got the bin. Can i give a MINUS mark?

Main Course Sausages, on a potato and root vegetable puree, side order chunky chips. Potato was crudely mashed with lumps ditto root veg 'puree'. portion was tiny, 3 sausages and bisto-style gravy. Unimpressive. 3/10 but only as the sausages were edible.


Overall a joke, an insult to diners. Staff don't give a 4X. Several patrons paying at the bar had gripes. When asked how my meal was I replied that they couldn't mess up the alcohol.


If you care about food, care enough to give this rip off pub a wide berth.

“After two? - Forget it!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Another place where we were refused service point blank, having arrived there minutes after 2pm. I wouldn't have minded if it were done with a smile, but the girl behind the counter was quite surly and didn't give a toss. Poor. Just poor.
