We called here by chance and what a lovely surprise. the food was not only inexpensive but well presented well cooked and plentiful. the mixed grill (steak, pork steak, gammon steak, black pudding, mushrooms, tomato and chips) cost £6.90. what a bargain

After a day out we happened upon this pub while visiting the near by pier. We were amazed at the price of both food and drink. It's a real ale pub and we tried the Timothy Taylor Bolthead and some Rosie's Pig cider- both lovely. The food was basic pub food but very hot and massive portions. It was so... More

I went to this pub several times with my friends for a drink. It can serve basically all our needs for drinks with various choices of beers, ciders, wines, spirits, etc. Especially in Friday, there will be a Quiz night instead of music like the others which is quite interesting.

This is my local and I can highly recommend it. The food is unpretentious, excellent quality and with generous portions wonderful value. The beer is top-rate as well, and the bar staff friendly, so for a pub what more could you ask for?

My wife and I visited this place on a wet cold Saturday in January. I had the mixed grill and my wife had the gammon special of the day. The food was very good and incredible value for money. We shall definitely be returning as it's just the place to eat after a buffeting on the pier.

Go here quiet regular and have to say for the price you pay you surely do know you have had a great sized meal. Not sure were else you can get a mixed grill for under £7. Friendly bar staff and always accommodation to my awkwardness no egg, but a jug of gravy.....
