Been here many times over 14 years and we like it here. The food was lovely, staff very polite and friendly. Lots of people had their dogs with them, so its a dog friendly bar too. We had the kids and they were just as welcome

We were hoping for much more of a beachy feel as this pub is right off the main beach. Very busy regardless of weather. Average food - limited selection of beers and ciders. Nothing to write home about. We didn't go back although we were at the beach for a week.

Wonderful view of the beach and sea. Good honest food, friendly staff. If the weather bad you can take your dog inside and eat. Would recommend this pub

Great view but food very much lacking. All seems to be typical frozen 'Philip Dennis' fare. Appears we paid for their microwave electricity bill more than anything else! (You can actually hear the 'bing!' from the seating area.) We much preferred 'The Tides Inn' just further up in the village, which serves completely fresh food (they have a new chef)... More

Love the choices of food... excellent location to watch the sunset and sea. Don't expect to find many places to sit though as it gets very busy even at off peak season. The service was a little slow but staff are extremely busy and work very well to keep customers happy.

This looked a lovely place but the staff were rude and grumpy. Would not recommend this place. They should learn to treat their customers better.

A very popular restaurant / pub / bar with a prime location. Was very busy around 18:00 but lucky enough to get a table for 3. The bar had a number of beers and real ales and plenty to chose from for the children. The menu was centred around a BBQ - with burgers being the main focal point, but... More
