Had oven baked sea bass, with vegetables. Freshly cooked. Friendly staff. Open most days of the week but best to book a table for Sunday lunch. Lovely views of the sea.

Just chanced upon this pub for lunch today. Very friendly staff, first class service and really good fresh tasty crab sandwiches. Would have preferred a more rustic type of bread but I'm being picky to be honest. Great find.

The food is good pub food, a little pricey but reasonable quality. The views are what makes it great. Definitely worth a visit.
