The food was that good we came two nights in a row. We were staying at Waterrow caravan park. The fish soup is epic. Crab, avocado & smoked salmon delightful. Beef blade and steaks good too. Book a table and enjoy a rare treat.

Country pub. All our food is homemade using local produce where ever possible. We have a childrens menu and welcome dogs in the bar area on a lead. Some of our rooms are dog friendly as well. Lunch and dinner reservations are recomended although not always necessary.
