A mid evening visit to this very busy pub and restaurant on a Friday evening, we got here just before the live music started and left about 20 minutes later!

There were 4 ales on the hand pumps, 2 from Adnams, Trawlerboys from Green Jack and my choice which was Grain’s Threeonesix @ 3.8%. It was okay but didn’t quite cut it with me.

A large open plan pub with a separate dining room to the right as you enter, once the music started the door was closed on the diners, may have been because there were kids in the dining room.

As mentioned above a live band were playing and to be honest this ruined our visit a bit as we couldn’t talk over the music (fair enough I hear you say) and that’s why we left and returned to the Trowel & Hammer.

Large frontage area over looking the cliffs and sea, might be worth another visit….the food I saw go past me looked good.

Lovely refurbishment and wonderful views.....but oh dear,the beer !!! Had a pint of trawlerboys the other night which was served at probably the coldest temperature I have ever had a beer served at. Was even colder than my son's lager ! If they are going to serve real ale then it really needs to be served near the proper temperature if they are going to attract those who like real ale.

This pub (in April 2014) has new owners.
All the internal walls have been knocked out to reveal the sumptuous sea view and the sea food menu is absolutely fantastic.

Don't take my word - try it.

I am just a (lucky) local resident.

My previous posting about this pub has to be ignored...

Drinkable Adnams Southwold and Broadside - what an unoriginal choice around these parts. No ambience in the large bar area whatsoever though all of the staff are pleasant enough. The food is okay but generally more expensive than elsewhere locally. My wife's Spanish omelette had rather more in it than stated on the menu and didn't really hang together. We were given a voucher saying that there was 25% off our meal next time we visited so we decided to try a Sunday carvery. It was actually quite good.with a choice from four joints of meat and plenty of vegetables with all the trimmings. However, the 25% off does not apply on Sundays. Always read the small print.

A couple of Adnams beers on. Food is ok, but nothing spectacular. Very busy on Saturday nights with carvery. On an un-related note, watch out for midnight. The street lights in certain parts of town are turned off!
