This single roomed pub stands in the shadow of the lighthouse very close to the brewery. The interior was significantly modernised in 2003 as Adnams saught to create a number of bistro style pubs. It still retains a few bits of nautical bric-a-brac and always offers excellent beer.

Built circa 1835.
