It is worth making the effort to get here, quite difficult to navigate to if you don't know the area well. Roomy, great traditional pub food and ales with views of the Camber Dock to take in the boats

Managed to get a table at short notice. Fab food, including delicious roast and chocolate brownie. Wonderful and attentive service. Great atmosphere. What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon: open fire, pint, good food and family.
