In my eyes the best thing about this pub is that it sells extremely good Whin Hill cider, made just up the road at Wells-Next-the-sea. I could finish there as it is the only good thing I found on my visit. However forewarned is forearmed...More

We have eaten here before but it has changed. A fairly limited menu - some nice staff some attitudes. Very average food - dry burger and not well seasoned. We saw another table return cold food. Had passport with us and truly think this should...More
