Christmas day drinks, first visit and can't say anything bad about this place to be honest. Always appreciate an owner opening up on Christmas for a few hours so respect where it's due. My lads played on the free pool table while the wife and I sunk a few Kraken and ginger beers..hit the spot with a good time had by all.

Friendly atmosphere, great food, comfy room and bed. Host and staff were really helpful and even took us to the Heliport for our trip to Lundy. Not easy to get around the area without a car!
