After a length of the seafront in October it was outside Fish and Chip or lunch and a pint. It was coldish and we needed a comfort break so on seeing the menu on the wall outside we thought, cool this is just the place we can rest out limbs and have some lunch. Unfortunately the ladies and children rushed... More

We stopped here for lunch with 2 young kids a teenager. Vast majority of menu is with chips. We had burgers, chicken nuggets, sausage and fish....all served with chips. Disappointed that there was no salad, veggies, not even a baked bean in sight...not even a green garnish!!! Let's try and offer some healthy side! Service was friendly and nice to... More

Outside is a partially shaded area facing the seafront and the hideously pink Flamingo next door. The seating area draws the tattooed larger drinkers but inside it's a stripped back floors, high wooden tables kind of place with good , well kept local,beers. Good music and laid back atmosphere. Nice place

Called in for a quick pint and sat in the beer garden at the front. Nice pleasant way to spend half an hour, Friendly staff and a good choice of beer. Small gripe, no hot water in the toilets

Great place to sit outside with a pint plenty of seating and children welcome. Tried the steak and chips one afternoon, very nice and reasonably priced. Bar staff courteous and quick to serve. A lot cheaper and quieter than the pub next door.

Wish we had not, bar staff are nice and polite. How ever the public area was tired and dirty. X2 baby seats still at the table... More

My friend and I took our two teenage boys for lunch in this pub. We sent back the chicken and chips my friends son had ordered and the chicken was so tough you could not cut through it. My friend and I ordered pie and chips. The pies were puka pies that had been microwaved, not very hot in the... More
