always a good place to visit to try out different beers and to meet a variety of people. Plenty of outdoor seating + they open an extra bar with covered seating when the cider festival is on.

Came for a wander from the Pier at Cleethorpes. Had a nice walk and happened upon The Signal Box Inn. Had some nice ales on plus Old Rosie on draught. Wife had a nice Ship Yard and a lovely Pint of Jack's Spaniels.
