The Inn has two different main areas a restaurant and separate sports bar area it was a shame you needed to go outside to get from one to the other especially when it...

There was a genuine air...

Stopped in here after our walk along the beach, it's the cleanest pub I have ever been in, nicely set out, pool table, darts board and fruit machines, has lots of character. Popular with the locals and good location, outside seating when weather permits, service was quick and staff were friendly. No children after 9pm

Previously had a fair meal last year however this year I waited at a empty bar, ready to order but the four bar staff would rather talk to eachother and ignore me so after a few minutes I walked out and do not plan on going back again.
