Don't go for the hype. Even though the pub is on the beach that is where the positives end. Food and drink are over priced and food is average. Far better pub in the town only a 5 min walk away.More

Drinks here are pricey! It's probably why most of the local visitors can be seen carrying bags of alcohol and drinking on the beach before going to the regular gigs that The Watering Hole puts on. We also had food. The portions were huge and...More

Unless it it a very high tide you can walk across from the car park over the bridge. During a high tide you can access The Watering Hole from our access road which is behind the venue.
