Always adore any experience in the strand. Food is always great with delicious specials on daily. Good value. Perfect for families that are on a day out to the beach! Great pub scene and always cosy. Great selection of beers. Always return!

Had a very nice lunch with friends and their four young daughters. Food was delicious, wide selection and plenty of it. Had the roast beef special and it was fantastic. Kids enjoyed the kids menu and cleaned their plates.
