Situated in a stunning coastal location, 200yds from the beach front, we pride ourselves on our hearty, traditional fare and ample drinks selection that should please all. Following a recent complete overhaul and change of management, we now boast a tastefully decorated interior with neutral tones with a relaxed feel. With a picturesque duck pond and plenty of outside seating, we are great for whiling away long summer evenings with a tipple, or enjoying our sofas, TVs and pool table in the warm for winter. With starters from £4.25 and Main Courses from £6.95 in addition to daily specials, children’s menu and vegetarian options. We offer live music every Saturday evening, quiz on Sunday evening and a Carvery on Sundays from 12 noon. We accept group bookings for all occasions and special dietary requirements upon request.
