13:30 visit. Busy with diners inside and drinkers outside enjoying the sun and great sea view. Uninspiring ale choice but the Guinness was good..

Friendly pub with limited but excellent menu. I had fillet of Sea Bream and it was very good. The locals were funny with 2 women sitting at the bar joking about how many husbands they'd had.
Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70GoodInteresting pint. Orange and mellon flavours dominated with a very strong bitter finish.
