Stopped here as a respite from a yacht trip. Room was clean but very basic which was fine for me and I thought worth the £59 I paid for b&b. Staff were all very friendly.

We were waiting for our return ferry back to the mainland when we decided we fancied a pudding in warm, comfy surroundings-This was EXACTLY what we recieved. Empty on a freezing, dreary Thursday afternoon mid-January, we recieved such a warm welcome and had really yummy puddings at extremely reasonable prices!

The room was fine, not overly large but had everything required. The people were very friendly and the breakfast was one of the best full English.

Went with a colleague after work. We had soup starters, a fishermans pie and fish and chips. Lots of food which we couldn't finish. With a pint of local Goddards beer and a white wine it came to just over £40. Service was quick and friendly.

Stayed two nights here and found staff v friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and very large. I didn't try the beer but the pub was full and jovial. The rooms are a little tired (but clean). The location makes up for it.

Thank Ed S
