The location can't be beaten - right on the beach. The servings of cod and chips were huge and we shared for lunch. Definitely recommend for a cheap and cheerful pit stop!

Whitebait starter and fish cakes mains both heavily battered and deep fried lacking in fish and flavour. Very greasy. Very disappointing. Lovely pub. Great service.

This place has it all in terms of location and character, visited for a drink and would have liked to try the food but were a little late. Played the juke box which had all the music relevant to our heyday! Highly recommended!

We ordered salads as mains but very disappointed as they were very small. Salad basically just garnish on side of plate! Not worth money and we left hungry!

Popped in here for a shandy. The pub is ok but nothing special with the staff more interested in their own conversations rather than engaging with their customers. Lots of seats and tables outside on the beach though so a lovely setting.
