Small inn overlooking the harbour and great staff
Lovely small inn overlooking the harbour. Unfortunately our room didn’t but it was a last minute booking and we got the last available room. The pub is a quaint old English feel with locals and holidaymakers alike. We also ate at the restaurant in the evening. Service was very good and attentive if fact throughout our stay the staff were excellent. The only downside really was that the room was incredibly warm even with the heating off and the window open. Our room was very small but pleasant and clean enough. Well worth a visit in my opinion.

A great escape
It felt very snug sitting watching the rain lashing the harbour outside. The staff were really friendly, the food was good and the room warm and comfortable. You can hear noise from the bar downstairs but then you are staying at an inn!
