Great traditional pub with live music, bar meals and a great view of the sea. From Sep 2017 I believe it is being refurbished for 4 months.

A pub based restaurant with good basic food from both a menu and specials board. The staff were welcoming and pleasant and the food good although perhaps slightly over priced for the quality received. Good for families.

Prompt, friendly service and a good choice of typical pub grub (pies, burgers, fish and chips) plus some more interesting fish and seafood specials. Generous portions and well cooked. Reasonably priced wine by the bottle and glass too. Rather tatty decor and stark lighting seemed...More
