Sunday carvery was very good at £8.95, meat was nice and hot and lots of veg to choice from including cauliflower cheese, creamy leek and red cabbage all my favourites. Very relaxed feeling in the upper bar. Would recommend it to anyone

Thoroughly enjoyable pub on the sea front. Comfortable seating, warm and cosy during winter. And great food on the menu, especially the mussels.Not an expensive place at all.
