THE LOOK AND FEEL

A coastal theme runs throughout with an interior focus on rustic and wooden furnishings reminiscent of the ancient fishing village. Old black and white photographs adorn the walls of the restaurant, amidst large wooden tables, fisherman's lanterns, large cushions and freshly cut flowers. Think cosy and homely with low lighting; kick back and relax by the fireplace that used to be a traditional oven.

THE FACILITIES

Relax in the traditional old bar with its slate floors, wooden beams and a wide range of proper ales, the perfect place to settle yourself for the evening. There's also a large terraced area and beer garden for sunny days. The staff couldn't be more welcoming, with fantastic knowledge of the locality and anecdotal stories from the cove.
