The outlet trades as a one bar operation with a catering kitchen. On entering the pub, you are welcomed by the centrally located bar which services all areas. To the left of the pub there is a sports area, housing a pool table, darts okke and wall mounted televisions, providing an area for teams, along with those just wanting a drink. To the right hand side is where you will find the lounge area, set up for diners and able to host around 45 covers at a time. The pub boasts its very own skittle alley which is well used by local teams. The pub is in a outstanding condition with bright and vibrant fixtures and fittings which reflect its coastal location. To the rear of the pub is a large car park capable of holding over twenty cars. The beer garden is a true feature which attracts numerous walkers and tourists as well as divers, yachtsmen and other sportsmen as it idyllically overlooks the beach, creating an impressive backdrop all year round.


The pub underwent significant investment in 2018 with Admiral Taverns breathing a new lease of life into this gem of a pub. The current licensees have done a fantastic job re-launching this pub with a great local trade who enjoy the home cooked food on offer with live music at the weekend proving very popular. The pub also offers the full range of live sports and these are well supported along with its skittle alley that forms part of the main trading area of the pub. During the summer months this pub trades very well and exceeds all expectations.


Private Accommodation There are three bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen, bathroom and separate toilet, all of which are in excellent order having been refurbished in 2018.
