Lovely place to pop into for welcoming drinks and food. Service was quick with lovely food. Relaxing, welcoming fires after walks with good selection of drinks and food. Steaks and pies excellent.

We are at the lister arms on mother8ng Sunday. It's a nice relaxing setting with open fires & cosy furnishings. We both had the fish & chips. I ordered small which definitely wasn't so well worth the money. Nice atmosphere & great staff.

Went here for lunch after a walk around the cove. Had drinks and chicken and bacon sandwiches on lovely soft thick brown bread and chips. Was perfect, just what we needed.

Ordered moules at 6.00pm. Long wait of 50 minutes. Very tasty but the chips never arrived. When I asked the waiter, no hint of an apology, just a grunt and "I'll get them now". By now I had finished the moules so I told him...More

Thank you for review, we welcome all comments both positive and negative. We are not sure if you have the right pub? The last time we had mussels on the menu was at the beginning of last October 2017, almost 6 months ago. And none...More
