As you can see from the photo the hotel was having a refurb when we visited. It is part of the Old English Inns chain, which is owned by Greene King. Inside there is a dining area to the left, and a central bar to the right serving various seating areas. The overall effect is a pleasing change from a single room pub, with sea views from the front. Otter Bitter and Abbot Ale on hand pump.

A large, detached hotel, cream rendered with black paintwork, on the sea front.

The interior is open plan, with a bar area and a restaurant area, served by a central bar. It had red and white walls, with wood panel. There were lots of maritime memorabilia around. It had the table and chair/sofa mixed of seating. The service was functional and the staff seemed all to be young - summer jobs maybe? The place was crowded, a mix of young 'uns, families and maturer people. There was a TV with Eurosport on and background music

Not enough beer choice and despite some trappings, it is too soulless for me. I wouldn't bother again.

Great choice of food especially fish with about a dozen dishes to choose from. Stopped serving food at 2:30 though which I thought was odd for such a prime location. I guess it's probably different in the weekends/summer.

A nice pub with a great beer garden overlooking the sea. We found the staff to be freindly and helpful.
