Great breakfast! I judge a full English on the sausage and this was excellent- firmly packed and perfectly seasoned. The bacon was also better than supermarket standard. All the rest was very good and served quickly and on a warm plate. Service was efficient and friendly in a very nicely decorated pub. Highly recommended!

Popped in to try, after reading your reviews. The pub is well situated, good parking, nice views. The staff were polite, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is lovely, laid back, good music and comfortable lighting. We both decided on the chicken curry, although the menu offered a huge choice. The dishes were well presented, served with a poppadom, onion, and mango chutney. The curry was hot in temperature, and very moreish. We really didn't want to leave. Well done fantastic hospitality.

Delicious food, the portion size of which won’t leave you hungry at all. I had the whitebait (about 18-20 pieces) with chips, salad and homemade slaw; my son had a fully-loaded burger; daughter had scampi; wife and her friend both had the halloumi salad. Happy diners all around. Taste the local ales, enjoy an outdoor table as the sun sets, and leave with full bellies, all for a snippet of some of the prices you pay elsewhere.

Loved it, Googled somewhere for dinner before getting ferry, and found this pub last minute... brilliant menu lovely big modern pub with a nice outside area for warmer days. Brilliant menu with some unusual choices as well as your standard pub meals, specials available as well and even some cocktails. Very reasonable prices we had a great meal here and puddings.... service was very friendly and we would definitely go back
