Only had drinks in this pub as owner said no food being served that day. Lots of people were enquiring and leaving. Drinks were okay, had a lot of local beers which my hubby tried.

After a length of the seafront in October it was outside Fish and Chip or lunch and a pint. It was coldish and we needed a comfort break so on seeing the menu on the wall outside we thought, cool this is just the place we can rest out limbs and have some lunch. Unfortunately the ladies and children rushed... More

We stopped here for lunch with 2 young kids a teenager. Vast majority of menu is with chips. We had burgers, chicken nuggets, sausage and fish....all served with chips. Disappointed that there was no salad, veggies, not even a baked bean in sight...not even a green garnish!!! Let's try and offer some healthy side! Service was friendly and nice to... More

Outside is a partially shaded area facing the seafront and the hideously pink Flamingo next door. The seating area draws the tattooed larger drinkers but inside it's a stripped back floors, high wooden tables kind of place with good , well kept local,beers. Good music and laid back atmosphere. Nice place

Called in for a quick pint and sat in the beer garden at the front. Nice pleasant way to spend half an hour, Friendly staff and a good choice of beer. Small gripe, no hot water in the toilets

Great place to sit outside with a pint plenty of seating and children welcome. Tried the steak and chips one afternoon, very nice and reasonably priced. Bar staff courteous and quick to serve. A lot cheaper and quieter than the pub next door.

Been to Great Yarmouth a number of years now. Seen this pub before never used it until today. Walked in side to find it quite dull and dated. Thought we would give itba go. Wish we had not, bar staff are nice and polite. How ever the public area was tired and dirty. X2 baby seats still at the table... More
