What a gorgeous little pub very English with a great selection of drinks. Food was a little expensive but tasted beautifully. Staff and locals very friendly. Make sure you book, don’t waste your time going to eat anywhere else this is the place to be.

Visited this pub before our evening penguin viewing. I had the lamb burger, which was sliced lamb not ground, and my husband had the special lamb pie. Both were great and came out piping hot. The portions were giant too. The staff was very nice...More
