Met family here as a midway point. Sat by huge window overlooking the harbour, this was probably the best part. Meals ordered at the bar duly arrived. Main course followed by chips followed by veg followed by mash over a period of five minutes - I had eaten half my excellent steak and kidney pudding by the time the mash... More

We decided to have lunch here and was seated by the window where we had a lovely view of the harbour. We only wanted a light lunch but was tempted by their 2 or 3 course menu offer. I started my meal with tomato soup and it was served hot and very tasty, my other half and daughter had the... More

It says a lot for a restaurant when the thank you mints were the best part of the meal!! Myself and my wife went to the Jolly Roger for an evening meal and were very disappointed straight away. The service was poor and the food was even worse! In a nutshell this was an overpriced poor cafe. I had crispy... More

I took my wife and daughter for lunch on Saturday. My wife and daughter both had the breaded plaice off the specials menu. My wife's breaded plaice was severely lacking any fish. When she complained about the lack of fish she was told that some of the pieces were quite small but that is how they come. Offered to get... More

A nice old pub with a bright airy restaurant attached. Had a nice meal here and enjoyed being able to look over the harbour.

Dropped in at lunchtime for a meal with my wife and brother-in-law. Really friendly, happy staff. Good service and absolutely fine food. Even though I was a bit miffed about the 'no hats' thing - I feel really uncomfortable without a hat on. The staff were lovely about it and told me it was something to do with young folk... More
