Small pub right on the beach. Quick service - we had a pint each and some hot, fresh french fries to munch on. Clean pub, small, but lively. Patio seating as well. Can people watch or enjoy sports on the tvs.

We popped in for a quick breakfast. A great value. I had the traditional english breakfast with two eggs, english ham, and a banger. Very good. The coffee isn't the greatest but the food was tasty, well-portioned and fairly priced.

Great food with many choices. Pub style fish and chips, salads, hot and cold sandwiches, breakfast and daily specials and a neat bar. Dog friendly patio just across from the beach. Easy and fun times in Capitola Village.
