Can't beat the Cod and Lobster for the welcoming atmosphere, sea views and tasty, filling food. We had breakfasts, lunches and dinner here. The mussels, English breakfasts and lobster linguini were lovely! The staff are so kind, and kids and dogs are very welcome. Thanks...More

Called in for Saturday lunch. Had a great crab sandwich and a fantastic dish full of mussels in tomato sauce. Came with a warm baguette and butter. Just what you need on a cold Saturday afternoon. Drinks good , staff great.

Lovely pub. Fairly extensive menu. Good atmosphere and excellent location next to sea. Friendly service. Good evening talking to other customers and dogs. Food let down by sea bass being over cooked and lasagne burnt at edges though still tasty.

The Cod & Lobster is a fabulous pub serving great home cooked food for breakfast, lunch and tea. It’s so friendly. Inside, it is very comfy, and decorated with gorgeous old photos and paintings of the village and surrounding area, but outside is where the...More
