Not been here for a while and found that the menu is the same. Could do with a change and maybe a few more specials. Staff were very polite and helpful. The food took around an hour to arrive which is far too long. However it was very nice when it did arrive. The gents toilets need some attention. They smell awful, there's no hand wash and the drier didn't work!

We were visiting the Sealife Centre just up the road and decided to pop in for lunch after our visit.

Once inside, the pub was old and tired, the toilets had a distinct musty smell about them.
Staff unfriendly & miserable. Did not come over and ask if everything was ok until clearing the table when we were ready to leave. Plenty of choice on the menu but rather overpriced for a meal that was just average, not very impressed at all.

The room was old and tired. Torn wallpaper and dirty carpets. Sticky floor in the bathroom. No mattress protector between sheet and mattress. Tiny TV. Broken toilet roll holder. The handrail up the stairs was sticky and the doors and paintwork in public areas were dirty. We unplugged the kettle to use the plug socket and this also stopped the bathroom light from working. The room looked nothing like the ones on the website and did not match the rating given. The bedroom and bathroom both need a complete upgrade. The location for the Open Air Theatre is good and the staff were very nice. For the price paid it was very poor value.

I recently went with my cousin for an evening meal, we were very pleasantly surprised to find Whitebait on the menu, no contest for starter. We both opted for the steak & ale pie, which was delicious and the added bonus was being able to order a small portion. There are not many places do this, but it's great when it happens, as we find the smaller portion is ample for our appetites. I have been here many times for the Sunday Carvery, which is a treat to behold every time, but this was my first time for an evening meal, and it wont be my last. The staff are always very helpful and thoughtful. Well done Ivanhoe.
