Early afternoon and fairly quiet, we enjoyed a nice relaxing pint and enjoyed listening to John Lee Hooker on a reasonable music system.

I had not been here for a long time but a peek through the window revealed an impressive display of handpumps. A very enthusiatic barman gave us tasters of several of the ales. Bar billiards was being played in the back bar.

Lunchtime call after a windswept walk along the sea front from the remains of the pier to Rock-a-Nore. Calm respite in here, a pub I have not visited for many years.
