The sea has long deserted the quayside but an authentic nautical atmosphere lingers at this 17th century pub formed from two houses. Steps lead down to a simply furnished but superb main bar with low ceiling, flagstone floor and an aged scrubbed table. The bar counter is at least 70 years old as the photos in the snug show; the tongue and groove panelling and bar back shelves attached could be of similar date. To the right past an ancient spiral staircase is a cracking little snug with another old servery; one panelled wall looks post war. The dining room to the left has an impressive fireplace but almost certainly represents an extension into an adjoining property. Beyond this is another room brought into use. The rear entrance accesses an off-sales hatch to the back of the bar. Alongside it is the small bare boarded 'Chart Room', formerly the Stout & Oyster Bar, added in a 1950s flat room extension.
