Brilliant pub! Fantastic aspect over-looking the sea, the food is minimal (either meat or cheese and onion pie/pasty), the beer is tasty and all cask - 4 ales on the go at any time -, the cider is locally made, there is a fossil museum in the pub! Service from a hatch makes it busy at times but itís a very characterful and fun pub worth looking out.

You canít beat the views. Food is limited but usually a good pasty. Never had a bad pint here.

Great old fashioned pub. Lots of ciders and a few beers served by gravity, annoyingly only the names of beers are listed no the breweries. Service can be a problem with only a small serving hatch in the main corridor. Food consists of pasties or meat pies. A wonderful location and a quirky pub that is well worth visiting.

Whilst I can fully understand the popularity of this pub situated as it is in such a wonderful location, It was still not quite as good as I expected. The beer I had Downton Cherry Ale was very good, the pub interior wonderful but I just found it a wanting a little. Service was just one chap on a busyish summers day lunchtime, and the front of the pub with an assorted collection of odd bric a brac chairs and stone tables etc; just seemed a little contrived.
