The Anchor, Seatown

Went again during the summer and had a wondeful night. Stayed at the campsite on the hill and walked down. I had Turbot which was cooked to perfection and my wife had the half lobster. When she was ordering I said to her that it probably wouldn't be enough but when it came out it was the biggest lobster I have ever laid eyes on. The claw was bigger than my fist (and that's pretty big), it was impossible to crack open with the nut crackers they gave us so it had to be sent back to the kitchen to be opened with a sledgehammer judging by the noises.
Had a couple of pints of Palmers Copper Ale and ended the evening sitting in the dark in the cliff garden with coffee and cognac listening to the sound of the waves on the beach. Perfect.
See you in August when we will return en mass for my mates 50th.

This is without a doubt one of my favourite pubs in the country.

The Barleymow, Hayling Island

Now does a daily carvery which is great value. Always busy and you will have to queue for your food but well worth it. I would go there 2 or 3 times a week if it were closer, you couldn't buy the food to cook at home for the price.

The Robin Hood, Standford

This used to be a decent pub but now you can't buy a drink unless you are eating. Supposed to be a seafood and steak reataurant but didn't see much evidence of seafood on the menu.
Went in the Sunday before Christmas for the carvery. At 12.95 a head it should have been spectacular, sadly this was not the case. It was ok but not particularly good and definitely not worth the money.
I live quite close and this place always appears to be pretty much empty so I don't think this enterprise will last much longer. 10 people in the place at lunchtime the Sunday before christmas says it all really.
Awaiting it's return to a proper pub as soon as possible.
