    Excellent pub for a stop off near the start of the South West coast path. Nice bar and outside tables looking out over the water. Friendly service-and the food was a revelation! This is a proper seafront pub that you shouldn't walk past.

    On their website under "Our Rooms" , E.g. "double for Single Occupancy" you can enter your planned date/s for the room you'd like and the price will be provided. Or phone them direct, they were VERY helpful.
