Always busy whenever I come here. Good to see a traditional real ale pub in such good health.

13:15 I was going to have lunch here but at £13:95 for a crab salad I changed my mind. The bloomin' things are swimming about just offshore. There were six beers on and the one I tried was not in good condition. I wish pubs would concentrate on quality not quantity.
