WE didn't eat here but after a coastal path walk we had a few beers outside taking in the ocean and beach views.

Just returned home after a really good Sunday lunch with my brother and sister in law. From the starter to the dessert everything had a beautiful flavour and with the view of the rough sea outside while having cup of tea it was so relaxing and would recommend this place to everyone. Everything was well presented and no bother to... More

Terrible food came cold when asking to heat it I think I was putting them out . Cold resturant brought a gas fire after 5 mins this was turned off I would not recommend this resturant.

Had lunch here today after walk along the coast. Nice bar area with good selection of beers. Roaring log fire and whole place was lovely and warm and very welcoming. Staff were very friendly and service was quick and efficient. Sat at table by window with 180 degree sea view. We both had the Smugglers Fish Pie and it was... More

Spent three nights here at the end of November. A great place to stay, with a well-stocked fridge in the apartment and a nice bottle of wine waiting for us. Wonderful views out to sea with a nice bonus of a perfect sunrise on our last morning. Thoroughly recommended.

We loved this pub. What's not to like about a dining room right on the water's edge? We had tasty food and excellent service from staff that were really friendly and helpful. They even moved us to the best table in the restaurant, when one became available, so that we could enjoy the lovely sea view. The bar has a... More

Average pub in a picturesque area. Can understand why many are fans however take the scenery away and you're left with your local bland boozer with a nice backdrop

We were staying in the village at a self-catering cottage and only thought of going to the pub at the end of the week, we wish we had found it earlier. My Fish Medley was wonderful and my dining companion found the Baked Cod stuffed with Prawns the best meal ever had in a pub. I cannot recommend this pub... More
