About the Pub

Perched above the SW corner of the harbour, this is an old fishermen's pub accessed via steep stone steps. The pub has an open if rambling, almost U-shaped bar area, with a fire at each end and stone walls hung with plentiful mixed but mainly maritime bric-à-brac and interesting old photos taken locally around the end of the 19th century. The floor is wooden near the bar, and slate in the dining area. The open-beamed ceiling is decorated with banknotes, beermats and even postage stamps, and a coin 'collection' is built on the bar support posts. The family room is separate. Food is available daily. Although the windows are small there are superb views over the harbour and out to sea, better enjoyed from the outside tables on various levels; look out for the local 6-oared pilot gig practising on summer evenings. Entertainment runs to folk singers on Wednesday evenings, otherwise is limited to background music. The faint of heart should beware on stormy days!
