Good service, good food, good view and good value. Family meal out timed just right that it was quite enough that my small people could enjoy there meal with some noise and this didn’t appear to annoy anyone. Staff as normal friendly and courteous. Food was more then filling and desert finished everyone off. Evening light lit up the dark night and you could make out the waves breaking in the rocks below.

My daughter and I had a lovely carvery here yesterday. So nice not to have to wait for the vegetarian option. Were given a window table with sea view which made our visit even better. Service and atmosphere all good

My partner enjoyed his food – muscles followed by the pork belly. he said it would be 3 stars for him, and not 2. However, I did not find my food enjoyable at all. I started with the nachos which, aside from being very below average initially, I then found a long hair in. I raised this and then i had them replaced and they were still not very good. I had expected that they would be knocked off the bill but they were not). I had the Philly cheese steak for my main which again was very disappointing. The chips it came with were cold and inedible. The sticky toffee pudding was nice but overall it was a pretty poor experience.

Sitting on the top terrace on a lovely sunny day, looking out to sea with a drink and a meal.Fish and chips were delicious. Staff very friendly. Lots of seating, inside and out. Lovely view. Amusements on the ground floor. Restaurant inside looked amazing. Free car park next to the building.This is now one of my favourite pubs. Would definitely recommend, and will return next year when we are back for our holiday.

Our visit was not as good as previous visits we've had, the food was disappointing.In case tips are necessary, better quality food, less salt, a drinks menu, as well as compassionate, kind staff is a good place to start.Shout out to Bailey (only reason for 3 stars on service), who was friendly and helpful and kept a smile going even by the end of his shift. Our waitress decided she didn't want to deal with us during the service when she realised there would be a complaint…Thankfully, the view and sunset was outstanding.
