We had good food but from limited menu. As we were leaving a waitress passed us with a large plate of steaming mussels ansi I mentioned that I hadn't seen mussels or for that matter any seafood on the menu. She explained that mussels were on the bar menu, which we hadn't been shown! I cannot fathom why she didn't... More

A bit over priced but the service and food is generally very good. Lovely location by the harbour. In season some good fish options and local Exmoor meats. Generally well cooked too!

A very popular busy pub because of the excellent food . A good choice of fish , we had fish stew with saffron potatoes which was delicious with crusty bread. We returned for lunch next day and had cod gougon sandwiches which were enormous !! Book early to find a table in the restaurant but the same menu is available... More

This was a last minute booking and Tim the owner was extremely helpful when I telephoned. We booked room 3 overlooking the bay; it was small but nicely decorated with a shower en-suite. The bed was extremely comfortable and we could hear the sound of the sea as we drifted off to sleep. The room was immaculately clean and a... More

We made our reservation on the same day we wanted to stay there and were lucky to get a table. We had our dinner in the restaurant part (not in the pub part) and were very pleased. The food was really good, we had a little chat with the staff that was very friendly. The atmosphere is elevated, but not... More

We went here for dinner after a local business proprietor recommended it. We were told that the restaurant was fully booked but that we could eat in the bar area which we happily did. The service was superb and the food was very good. The portions were generous and the menu showed imagination and flair. We would definitely eat here... More
