I always eat here as the food is so good. Prices are reasonable and staff look after you. I keep telling the chef I'll marry him but he always says no. 😞 I will return in August and already booked in for dinner. 😀😀

So glad we booked as all tables in the dining area were full.Decent menu for kids but three of us settled for fish and chips and we weren't disappointed! Best we've had for a long time.Lovely atmosphere.

There is a good range of food at this bar/restaurant, including excellent sea food. The portions are generous and good value for money. The owner distills gin on site and was happy to show us around. Well worth a visit for food and drink.

Quite a roomy pub which wasn't busy at all, also has a beer garden, which appeared to be sun trap. Very friendly staff, chatty landlord. Had crab sandwiches served with coleslaw and salad, very nice, packed full of crab meat. Would return.

We went for lunch and the food was really nice. The place itself was really nice and little places to eat all over the place. Nice decor and really nice helpful polite staff. Will certainly recommend it and go again.
