Small menu but great value. Really good honest pub food. Large portions for healthy appetites. Roast cod was delicious.

Visited one night , limited choice of food, beer etc. Full of regulars, locals etc. Seemed like it couldn't have changed for 30 years and maybe that's what some of the attraction was, but it was not for us.

As we were staying locally we visited the Ship Inn, a typical pub with atmosphere and enjoyed a very good meal. They served good beer and a very acceptable range of wine by the glass and all reasonably priced.
