Book, particularly in summer months and weekends, if you don't want to be disappointed at this excellent foodie pub.
Expect low beams, bare wooden tables and no frills apart from the old maps and local artworks that adorn the walls. The dining tables are partly divided by a white wall of broad arches and wrought iron screens.
On the food front, everything's made in-house, and the offerings change with the seasons - seafood and local produce in abundance.
Among the starters, expect the likes of 'Mussels with Garlic Butter' (or cooked with Cider and Sage); ''Crab and Coriander Fishcakes'; 'Provencal Fish Soup'; homemade paté and the like.
More substantial dishes might include 'Char-grilled marinated Chicken'; 'Rack of Lamb'; 'Dressed Crab' and 'Belly Pork and Black Pudding with Cider and Mustard with Braised Cabbage'. While for Sunday lunch, this might be joined by 'Roast Rib of Beef with Yorkshire Pudding' and Roast Mountain Lamb'.
There are also a few interesting vegetarian options.
