Small training conference. Food previously ok. Today it was two platters of dry sandwiches. Nothing offered or labelled as vegetarian or gluten free. No salad. Not the way to attract business.More

Right on the harbour so great views of all the yachts and cruisers. Plain simple pub-grub. I Had ham, egg and chips which was excellent. Very pleasant and helpful staff. A nice place to while away a couple of hours with a bite to eat.

Fantastic civilised pub/hotel. Have been previously & it's every bit as good. Great local ales, huge selection of gins, friendly knowledgeable staff and excellent fish & chips.
