|On arrival the place was covered in scaffolding so didn't look inviting but once inside it's really nice. Only two real ales on offer with one being willys bitter which was a good session beer. Tried the home cooked food which was reasonable.|

|I visited here and was looking forward to trying a pint of Willys but unfortunately at the time of my visit, the only hand pump in action was the Black Sheep Bitter. I had a pint of this which was perfectly fine, however I would have preferred to have tried something a bit different. There were four hand pumps in total, Willys, Bass, Black Sheep, and something else I can't remember. To only have one of the four ales on was a bit disappointing. Perhaps I caught them at a bad time.|
The place was fairly busy with lunchtime diners, fishcakes seemed to be a popular option and although I didn't dine here myself, the portions looked fairly generous and I'd definitely be tempted to eat here if I was in the area again.
The terracotta floor tiles in the bar area looked like they should have been in the toilets, and bizarrely the flooring in the toilets would have been well suited to the bar area. Some of the décor looked a bit run down - a half painted wall towards the back of the bar which looked as if somebody just gave up half way through.
The staff were pleasant and efficient, keeping on top of clearing tables and cleaning the bar area.
Overall a pleasant atmosphere, and I'd be tempted to return if they had other ales on next time, and as previously mentioned, to sample the food.

|I think if your in an area you should always look for a micropub and it's surprising that this one is in a seaside resort. Came here 5 years ago and was pleasantly surprised and I would say the same now. A great addition to a town that mostly prefers keg. I'd say that the pub needs to get in touch with a few like minded micropubs and share a few ideas and beers. A must if in cleethorpes.|

|Been in a few times recently and must say the beer quality appears to be improving. Willys bitter still tastes different everytime you go in though !|

|Popped in for lunch the other week. One Willys beer on and a couple of others. Tried the Willys Original Bitter and the White Horse Giants Stairs which were both excellent. Had the chilli which was also great. This place is easy to find as it is right on the sea front. Well worth searching out if you're in town.|
