The food was good , we had the carvery , fresh veg and nice and hot . Only thing was we couldn't understand the price increase of £5.00 extra for a large plate , the only difference was 2 extra slices of meat and prahaps a little more veg . I think this was a little to much increase .

Pub at the entrance to caravan park site which offers your basic pub menu, all well cooked, with carvery every Sunday and every every evening. Popular with locals as well. No frills or fancy bits to the food but honest home cooking.

Have to say we were quite disappointed with our meal, very average and for the price we expected better, one example is a Stilton sauce which cost 2.95 that had only the very very faintest taste of Stilton, the chips were anemic, the peas were like bullets, the steak was chewy! After having fish elsewhere which was excellent, it was... More

Lovely lunch here today. Great value, tasty food! Lovely garden space for the kids to play too. Brilliant for a stop after a walk on the lovely Par beach.

Always great service and a good plateful but the menu is a little basic! A good pit stop after waking the dog on Par beach, big gardens and a warm welcome
