Extremely friendly pub, if you like real beers there is always 3 ales on at any one time, 8 malt whiskeys. Can do with a coat of paint on outside but don't let that put you off.

Have now visited twice and love this place. It has a nice atmosphere, good service and great selection of beers and cider. It is very clean and has an eclectic clientele.

I have known this pub for several years. It is a quiet haven close to the sea front and the Award winning Time and Tide Museum. There is always a selection of well kept real ales and a draught cider. Well worth seeking out.
