Excellent food and great staff

This is a great place to eat as it has some lovely dishes and has a specials board. We tried the sea bass which was so nice we returned for a second helping! Our party also tried the fish of the day which was a whole sea bream, again delicious. The shell on prawns, the fish and chips and the crab ramekin were also really nice and the bread served here was gorgeous and you get plenty of butter. The chocolate brownie dessert was a triumph too. All of this, plus it is dog friendly! Definitely recommended to try.

Friday lunch

Two had ploughman's, one fish and chips, one sea bass. All excellent.
The new to the menu Lemon Posset was a delightful end to the meal.

Good quality, well priced

Good quality, well priced and varied menu, with indoor and outdoor seating. We had a whole fresh plaice, and pulled pork burger, and both were excellent. Decent wine list as well

The Old Fort Seaview

Lovely seaside pub with outside sitting area. Enjoyed the food, but you do need to book ahead as they get very busy and its OK to sit outside if it is a balmy summer evening.

Nice but....

We never got to actually eat in this pub. We did try several times but we were either too late or too early and they weren't serving food and then on our last evening there we were told no dogs after 6pm so we couldn't get a table. To be honest we did rather feel that sailing club members were given priority over holiday makers and that we were a bit of a nuisance that is tolerated rather than encouraged.
