Visited the mariner many times over the last eight years and as always they make you feel welcome and Angela is always pleased to see you when we arrive good food and big portions and frat for families with a play area away from the busy road we will probably visit again next year

Out cycling in the area, and got there at 2.30pm, hoping a drink and some food would be available in a great location. A frosty older man met my enquiry with a curt no. As you'd expect some loyalty in such a village, I asked if the other pub were still serving, no idea was all I got. Local golf...

A hotel with an excellent view of stunning scenery, ideally placed with plenty car parking adjacent to hotel. Friends and I had an enjoyable local walk rounded off with our lunch in the Mariner. Fairly busy venue serving average food, although food was plentiful and reasonably priced.

I found the Mariner on Google and was pleased that I was able to have a room at short notice. I arrived at 19:50 and was shown to my room which faced the sea. Straight to the bar I went and decided on Red - the wine was on draught which would not be my normal way of trying wine,...

Spent a couple of days camping at a near by site and dined both nights at the Mariner Hotel. First and foremost the views from the hotel are fantastic. A truly wonderful location and very peaceful and relaxing. The hotel is in good order and has a very pleasant bar and dining area looking across the estuary. The service at...

The hotel was just what I wanted. We were stopping off en route after a trip to Northern Ireland with my elderly parents. We had 2 lovely rooms, both overlooking the river. The rooms were clean and comfortable with all we needed, we all slept well. We had tea here and also breakfast, both very enjoyable. Our hosts looked after...

Cold day so were looking forward to nice cosy Sunday lunch. Hmmm pretty boring food and had keep our jackets on. Won't be heading back sadly. Main meals cost around £9 and didn't seem homemade, very bland!
