I have always loved the Volly but when my wife and I went this Friday after a work as we often do we were met by an 18month toddler kicking a ball around the lounge being chased by a yapping border terrier! 10 minutes later...More

A friendly traditional pub with table service in the lounge and dogs in the bar. Perfect after a walk on the beach or anytime!

The most over rated and most expensive pub we've ever been too. Plus absolutely no atmosphere inside this little 'pub'. Found the manager to be quite arrogant as well when we asked why the beer was so expensive

Spent the evening here with a group of friends. The place is charming and well run. We closed the place down and loved every minute of being there.

Table service one side or stand at the bar the other side discussing the political ramifications of Brexit or how long it takes someone to pierce all the holes in a teabag with a pin! Great beers, great staff and a superb little pub!

We've visited a couple of times whilst in the area and it never disappoints! Order your drinks at the bar and they are brought to your table. No meals here - just a traditional, classic drinking pub! Tuesday night is packed for their popular quiz...More
