Nice pub with a good selection of real ales - treatment of bar staff to customers can be awful with brusque treatment showing an uncaring/rude attitude. Definitely would not recommend to anyone and I certainly will not be going back.

Wonderful selection of beers and ciders, and live music too! Even better, the ciders were kept and served at room temperature, letting all the taste out! Bar staff very friendly and knowledgeable! Will definitely be back! Well deserved CAMRA awards!

Quality craft beers at sensible seaside prices. Don't be put off by the location or initial impression of decor this is a gem of a boozer. For those that want more from a pub than a Wetherspoons. And the pizzas are quality too. So glad...More
