Ok. So. I have been told by my other half I must not knock the Gibraltar rock. Now, as a pub with a view nothing here is not to like. Plus just about the only pub that serves bottles of modelo. A massive plus for me. Beers reasonably priced and location is a pretty good. There is a certain scent... More

We were charged £5 for a pint of orange and soda and a pint of lime and soda! . I must however say the... More

Lovely place, high standard of food, well decorated. At the end of a cold coastal walk a visit here was very much appreciated. High standard of presentation, highly recommended.

Brilliant Carvery, especially week days, 2 meals for a Tenner. Help yourself and fill your plate. Very friendly staff and better still a very generous chef dishing out the meat. Good selection. There is a general menu too if you don't want the Carvery service. You can also arrange a takeaway Carvery meal. Comfortable and clean premises. Love it.
