Have called in for lunch twice this summer and both times I was impressed by the cleanliness and friendliness of this pub. It may not be up to the minute in terms of decor but it has a real pub feel with a separate restaurant area for those who prefer it. The food is traditional pub style with a range of hot meals and sandwiches etc. Very good value. Will definitely visit again.

I read the other reviews before posting just to see if others had the same impression as i.
As the only pub close to the clean and tidy but expensive (food) holiday camp they must be sitting on a goldmine, but what a wasted opportunity.
Outside the place is unkempt with a broken window and frame, which had some torn old plastic covering it, not a good first impression.
On entering the pub the first thing that you notice is the smell of cigarette smoke even this long after the ban? The carpet was disgusting I’ve been in pubs with sawdust on the floor cleaner than this; Seats were not to clean either
The beer was good and they even understood when we asked for a light and bitter (old Git) most unusual nowadays.
Our first thought was not to eat in this place, but asking if there was another place to eat were told no, we should have gone with our first thought.
We were told they did not do food until 12 this was 11.50, at 12 My wife went to the bar to order food bar staff started to take order then went and chatted to someone else for another 5 minutes (training required)
Food was plentiful but not very hot, ham was so thin you could see through it, egg not fully cooked, the steak & kidney pudding seemed to be the cheapest you could get, one good pudding is better than two poor ones.
When we finished eating waitress (manageress?) cleared one plate then bu88erd off for 5 minutes, I could go on, don’t seem to get anything right.
This place should be avoided until its cleaned up and improved

This is a pub that I spend so much time in you could call it a second home. Lets get the rotten bits out of the way first. It is absolutely screaming out for money to be spent on it. Your feet stick to the surface that has now formed on top of the carpet by the bar. The mens' toilet has only got one cold tap that works and it's always dark in the pub no matter what time of day it is. People smoke in the lobby and the old off licence which lets the smoke drift into the pub anyway. This could be an amazing pub that would take all of the trade out of the local holiday camp if the time, money and effort was spent on it. Now lets talk about the positive. I absolutely love this pub. I compare this pub to a really old pair of slippers. You know they need getting rid of but you just can't do it because of how comfy they are even though they're knackered and dirty. I love the friendly and fun staff, the locals (even the pain in the arse Neil!) and the regular holiday park people that use it. The bottled beer is always cold and available in vast quantities, which is handy when you can clear a shelf of 24 bottles with your mate in one sitting. The couple that own the pub are also lovely. The food is really nice and very good value for money. On some Sundays it's a book only job or you lose out. If you want posh 'this aint your kinda pub'. If you want a nice relaxing drink and laugh then it's exactly what you're looking for.
