Great choice of beers, buzzing happy atmosphere, barman couldn't have been more friendly and helpful even when rushed off his feet. Dog friendly and a great garden.

Staying in West Bay but on our weeks holiday this was "local " . Great original pub which really welcomes you. Great choice of ciders , recommend the ginger and chilli , rhubarb and strawberry. Very dog friendly as well.

A very quiet pub serving delicious food. Lamb Sunday roast & Ham, eggs chips & peas. The lamb & Ham were both very good. The Rhubarb crumble is to die for.
