Massive portion, lovely food and great service- I’ll be back! Exquisite red cabbage and giant Yorkshire puddings- no room for dessert unfortunately.

Reasonably priced with good food and friendly service. A good choice for lunch situated directly opposite to the central station. We had soup (tomatoe) and halloumi burger, and both enjoyed it. I am sure I will be eating here again.

Hi Michael, thanks for your feedback, however we are not a hotel by the seafront. I think possibly this was meant for the Grand Hotel?

You expect this to be a bit soulless given where it is (right outside train station) and perhaps not so friendly, but the opposite is true. Great pub, good food and a lovely open fire when it's cold!
