Great little place for sunny evenings looking at the breathtaking view, we didn't get to sample to food as they were fully booked! Nice little pub in itself too.

Highly recommended, Delicious food, friendly staff. We had to wait for a table on our first visit as they were fully booked but we sat in the bar and were kept updated and only had to wait 20 minutes. Best to book if possible.
