Very nice pub with lovely views over the North Sea from the restaurant. The restaurant is very clean with excellent staff and a good menu, fish, meat, kids and a good selection of puddings. Price wise compares with most places and would definitely visit again

Staying locally, we thought we would try here for our evening meal. They pub was lovely and warm on a cold, foggy evening. The meal was excellent, with plenty to choose from, and everyone very friendly.

One star isn't even good enough. The most miserable front of house I ever come across; the staff were rude and service slow - considering how under cooked the food was too! Would not recommend this place to anyone I know and will never be...More

As previous answer, their menu is not published I can only vouch for a very nice nice Sunday lunch, haven't been there through the week as it's hit and miss whether it's open!
