Quiet pub. Great choice if food on the menu. Excellent service and meals were superb. Children's menu has great choice and the portions aren't stingy. Will be returning

We have two children under 4, this place was ideal for our needs. Quick friendly service and food at a high quality while modestly priced. I would recommend for families. This was our second visit, our first which led us to return was as a couple prior to the kids. Will likely return when next on the island.

Great food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Very enjoyable friendly environment. Clean bathrooms, clean restaurant. Very varied menu. We had 2 burgers - chicken burger and cheese and bacon burger - absolutely delicious. Great price and great food. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

We came across this place by accident and are pleased we did. Excellent value for money and the service could not be beaten.

We like the rustic charm and the great views from the terrace. Food is reasonably priced and tasty with good portions. Service by Nicole and Trude was courteous and we were made to feel welcome. We eat here often and have never been disappointed.

Booked a table for ourselves and relatives. Got confirmation of booking via email. Seemed like a good service and seemed easy to use. However, when we arrived for our booking we were met with blank faces. No booking in that name. Said we'd booked on line. Staff member disappeared and then came back and told us to follow them. We...

We stopped here for a drink Good Friday, as it was so pretty and were impressed with the cleanliness of the premises and the friendliness of the staff, despite being very busy. We returned the next day for a meal and were seated right away at the rear of the restaurant, overlooking the decking and small play area. We had... More
