I had the vegan bean stew and my partner had bacon and onion suet pudding. Both really delicious. Interesting pictures around a lovely venue. Well worth the drive to Newhaven beach - we even had a walk in the chilly rain - perfect

Lovely atmosphere, friendly, welcoming staff - especially the management. Food is nice and fresh, if a tad expensive. Outside seating area on harbour side, where you can watch the ferry come in and out. Regular live music events and beer festivals.
