8/10 Very good

Comfortable pub with friendly hosts. Close to the harbour in this very quiet fishing village. Basic food and accommodation but it's not listed as 5* so adequate for most stays.

Very comfortable and staff friendly. Went the extra mile in having a breakfast packed for us before they usually start - very welcome later on as we were doing the Race the North cycle run and had an early start
