This pub seems to be unchanged since the previous reviewer's visit - except that they now sell real ale, with both Courage Best and Director's on. We sat in the Saloon Bar, which is around at the back of the pub on the right. As far as I could see nothing in this bar was original, with false black batons on the ceiling, a fake gas fire (which was on when we visited on a cold January evening), and in fact it looks like a modern addition to the pub. But it was comfortable enough, with a carpeted floor, normal tables and chairs (probably the dining room mentioned by WhatPub), some Dr Syn prints on the walls, and a refrigerated food container displaying all kinds of tempting desserts. There's a fairly large garden area at the rear of the pub.

I poked my head into the Public Bar before we left, and it was certainly the more traditional and authentic, as well as larger, part of the pub. I saw that there were a group of apparent locals (not many tourists come here in January) playing pool. I reckon this pub makes its money during the tourist season, when I'm told that it gets jam packed with people. Overall I thought it was an average pub - OK for a pint or two if you're OK with Courage beers. The reintroduction of real ale is a massive plus point though.

A mock-Tudor seaside pub on the edge of town, surrounded by fish 'n' chip shops, kiss-me-quick hat vendors and - well, Tesco Express. It (the pub, not Tesco's) has a pool table which attracts a lively crowd of locals, a tv for showing live sports events and a pub grub menu. No real ale, so I had a pint of over-chilled Director's for the nostalgia value. There is nothing special about this place, it's just a good, honest down-to-Earth pub with a friendly atmosphere, a comfortable place to while away the afternoon or to drop in for lunch.
