Wonderful pub. Dog friendly, great garden out the back and wonderful food. They always create such interesting dishes. Different from the normal pub grub. It's a regular visit for us when we are staying in Southwold.

They are trying to have a balance between locals a Nd tourists, and they seem to do it okay. Good selection of alcohol! Rice's are fair. Live music some nights, so a good offer for everyone.

One of Hayling's treasures a real pub, not a restaurant and doesn't do food apart from crisps and rolls behind the bar. Just what you want in a pub, Great entertainment, live events, karaoke evenings, good prices for drinks, great bar staff and a fabulous...More
