Chose to start the afternoon stroll with crab sarnies and a pint. Sitting outside, overlooking the harbour with a great Ale and delicious food - hard to beat! The staff really did make our time there memorable.

I have no complaints about the food, service or price. It was all acceptable but there was no outstanding feature or dish. Given the location i expected something better but it was just okay.
