Excellent Sunday lunch on a bitterly cold winters day! Beef was very good indeed, with great veg as sides. Good choice of puds too. Very, very good service - prompt, efficient & friendly! Spotlessly clean loos too. Highly recommend.

I spent the day visiting this area and chose to stop for a pint at this pub. It is beautifully decorated within and the views of the sea and coastline are spectacular.
