This tavern is spectacular on a sunny day - sit outside on the grass and watch the boats pull up for a quick beer! The menu is very nice and the meals are great too.

A great pub with an awesome view. Food was very nice, service excellent and friendly staff. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't such a wait for our meals but I'm being picky.

Love this place. Gorgeous views and really nice pub food. Lots of variety. Pool table if you like or just gaze at the view. Seating inside and out. Lovely friendly staff. Best to book over the summer months as very popular.

In a beautiful location with a great deck looking over the bay. Food is pretty good fare typical of most pubs but some dishes do stand out
