We stopped for a quick drink and ended watching the sunset. A beautiful location to do so. The pub was busy and lots of people were eating. Food looked good but we did not eat there.

We visited in April and was lucky with the weather. The views from the watering hole are amazing with brilliant sunsets. There is a vegan option and I had the vegan sharing platter which was good but there were a few things that were swapped as they had ran out of ingredients. Nice that they gave an alternative but would... More

Granted it's not 5 stars but I thought it was enjoyable to sit with my feet in the sand overlooking the chips are not worth the calories but the beetroot salad was surprisingly quite good!

A pub out on the sand, with good choice of drinks and good food, the steak was spot on! It has the main area under cover with a conopy area then lots of seating with tables on the sand, fast service with a smile, yes I think it's a fab place and planning on going back! ENJOY

Amazing views from the only bar on the beach in the U.K. (Or so the locals say). Great atmosphere, v friendly staff and the food was amazing. Fresh, tasty and so much on the plate. Perfect pub.

We only stopped here for a quick drink, but I can imagine that it's a superb spot when the suns out in the Summer. Plenty of outside seating directly on the beach. Great place to sit and (if you have children) watch them play on the beach in safety. Wonderful panoramic views of the beach. This doubles as a sports... More

Excellent dog friendly beach bar. Spectacular views over the beach. Fantastic Sunday lunch carvery with a good choice of meats and vegetable dishes. Great choice of local beers and ciders. Just wish they would sort out the food ordering system. Very disjointed with having to order drinks from the bar - then having to requeue at the coffee and hot... More
