Dropped into the Scott Arms after a walk on the coast . Beer was great but the cheese sandwich bread was stale. The bar man was pleasant but was preoccupied and started pouring the wrong beer. Also food overpriced. I would not return.

There are different parts of the location. We had a very nice meal in a part of the pub that allowed dogs. Take your dog and enjoy!
