Perfect food & hosting. We were greeted as we entered by the manager Nicola & shown to our table. The service was fabulous & the open fire on a cold day was perfect.

Everything was just fine, One minor issue was that if you were sitting at the table on the far right (if looking from the bar) the light was right in my eyes. Needs angling a bit away or a better lightshade on it. Otherwise the food and service was great.

We cancelled our booking on arrival just after 7 pm . We were told it would be a 45 minute wait for food . This did not really suit us so we decided to give it a miss . I can’t say the person we spoke to on arrival was very welcoming. We wished to sit on the small terrace . We were told quite charmlessly that there was no table service on the terrace despite it being a few footsteps from the rest of the restaurant area . With a bit more charm and a smile we might have been tempted to stay . (Also the mussels were sold out . ) All in all we felt like we were a bit of a nuisance instead of people keen to have a meal out and spend some money on my birthday.

Friendly welcome, roaring open fire, good ambience, lovely table in the window overlooking the harbour, very friendly staff, great music! The food was plentiful, good quality and freshly cooked with a very comprehensive menu, plenty of choice for all tastes. Good selection of drinks. Lovely setting for walking or simply taking in the views. Lovely coastal pub!

Despite the busy evening the friendly staff accommodated our request to move our table away from the patio doors. The food was lovely in presentation and taste, although I do think there needs to be a vegetable/potato dish included with the fish cakes. We thought it was quite pricey for pub food.

We were able to park up for the night in our motorhome in the pub car park (we asked first!). Next day we took the ferry to Dieppe. We had a great meal and it was a good way to spend our last night in England before driving back home to the Netherlands. Full marks to the whole team - we gave a score of 9 for each category because there is always room for innovation and improvement, but in reality there was nothing we were dissatisfied with.

Great place,very friendly & efficient staff with a excellent atmosphere! Only small suggestion is maybe as your virtually in the sea a daily special of one or two un-battered fresh local fish would top it off

Thank you having us. The food was good value. The beef was a little tough and needed a steak knife. One of our dinners was on a cold plate and had to be sent back. One of our party has hearing aids and it was a bit noisy for him. Overall pretty good and we will come back.

The staff were amazing, very attentive and friendly. The food was cooked really well but unfortunately was a bit too salty. The ambience was some what ruined by the music being so loud (speakers), I couldn't hear anyone on my table so having a conversation was difficult. I think its a nice place for a drink but difficult if you want to eat and talk to your table.
