I cannot fault this place at all! Excellent service, food is not only cooked to perfection and well presented but you can taste the quality of it! Can't wait to visit again!! Oh and portion sizes are massive and very sensibly priced.

Having eaten here many times before and having enjoyed a roast or burger, I was really disappointed with the meal in May. My friend and I ordered burgers. They both were solid, dry, horrible. We would have sent them back except that it was close...More

A wonderful little pub. Great service and immediately made to feel welcome. Right down at the harbour with parking outside. A great menu with fresh high quality ingredients and great service from well trained helpful staff. The perfect night out

Reasonable price I had the monkfish and salmon medallions with champ and veg. Only critique is the salmon was overdone. Friendly staff with good banter. Enjoyed it and would recommend for the casual diner

We were part of a large family group who dined upstairs in The Snug to celebrate confirmation. We had a three course meal which could only be described as excellent. Adjustments were made to meals on request to accommodate allergies .

The Snug looks like an old fashioned pub on the outside but is very modern inside. 4 of us had dinner on a wet Sunday evening. Roast turkey & beef were excellent & so was the monkfish & salmon. Massive portions accompanied by lots of...More
