A Friday evening visit to this homely local after a couple of beers in the Oddfellows.

3 ales on, Robinsons Trooper wasn't the best but it was drinkable, I didn't try the Doombar but the Bombardier Burning Gold was very good, several pints of this was sunk later in the evening while playing pool.

The pub is carpeted and has artex walls and some faux wooden beams. Up a few steps towards the back garden and car park is another seating area that had diners in on this visit. At the back of the pub is a huge very well appointed beer garden. Loads of seating & room for the kids to run around in, there’s also slides and swings etc. This garden leads onto the cliff walkway.

Back inside the pub tucked away around from the bar is a Pool table, dart board & fruit machine.

This was the pub we spent the most time in on the Friday night and I can honestly say it’s very good. Bar staff and punters all very friendly.

The usual Adnams brews. Beer is kept ok but nowt to write home about.

I used to think that this was the best pub in the world.
I 'drank' there for over 20years until the new Asian Bar Manager decided to tell customers that I was was a 'shirt lifter' a*se bandit (gay) so I don't go there any more for fear of getting arrested for punching a halfwitted personalityless fecker's lights out...

What more can I say...? Don't go there if you have an oversion to tw**s

This was my experience...

A pretty decent pub overall without being "a must". The beer choice is nothing to write home about. But was in good condition. Personally didn't like the look of the conservatory restaurant. "Traditionally" low ceiling bar area. Garden quite big and views of the sea about 50 metres away. Worth a visit if in locality though for me The Ship Inn is better.
