The pub seemed OK when we were there this year, and reasonably full too, no complaints there. It was a bit of a treck to the shop at the caravan site, and there wasn't much in it either, a good shop would be welcome.


Do you remember the price of a certain bottle of wine on the menu, skipper? I now know how they raised the money for the pontoon.

By the way, as a lady who had to clamber over slime on the beach on her knees I think the pontoon is an excellent improvement. I'm sure the time thing will sort itself out and the honesty box system will work.

Not quite so sure about that, was speaking to a local lady who reckons that the village is devided about the usefulness of the new pontoon.
Was there last week jun 29-30, and someone had put up a FOR SALE sign on the top end of it.
Must admit I like the place, lovely backdrop to well sheltered moorings given the right wind direction.
Anyone came across the laughing deer who doeaent like crisps?

The wine one the menu was £250 a bottle. Everything else about £10 for the usual vin de plonk on the menu. There was a defibrillator unit on hand as well.

There was a rather friendly doe, a deer, a female deer, on the road near the ferry landing. She was asking when Autumnwatch was on, with that nice Simon King.....
