Great pub in a great location, a long weekend away with my husband, we had fresh grilled sardines and the calamari as a starter followed by the crab Thermidor and was not disappointed with the food, friendly service, will definitely be going back.

We are glad you enjoyed your weekend away with us. It is the charm of the Crab that makes the place that little extra special on those visits, so we hope that you come back to visit again

Unrivalled views, dog friendly and people friendly. Nick Cotton a resident throughout our visits tho too shy to ask for a photo. Lovely breakfast and lovely beers. And I can’t say enough about the views
