Rooms are innovatively styled and now come equipped with modern amenities such as tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and en-suite bathrooms. Pub B&B also offers visitors a tasty selection of home cooked breakfast options so that guests can start the day the right way before heading off to the beach. Guests can enjoy the fantastic British seaside experience visiting piers, playing on the penny arcades, building sandcastles, and of course enjoy some classic British fish and chips. After a great day out at the beach you can sit down and savour a relaxing evening in the pub, enjoy a few drinks, tuck into some scrumptious traditional homemade pub food, and then at the end of the night head up to your room, just a stone’s throw away. What could be better than that!
