I wrote a review of this place 18 months ago and am very happy to say that on a recent weekend visit it was as good as before. Friendly, lively, excellent food and very good entertainment with a mixed crowd where everyone can feel welcome.

A very nice pub a short stroll from the sea front. I enjoyed an excellent pint of Spitfire ale. A very warm welcome from the bar lady. I hope to return again particularly on a night when they have entertainment.
