Welcome to The Cod and Lobster

A Pub for All Seasons

A long-established favourite of the village and last defence from the ravages of the North Sea the pub has felt the wrath of the waves on at least three occasions. The last in the great storm of 1953 when the front was washed away and the fishermen looked on in sorrow as the precious bottles of brew bobbed about on the retreating foam. Locals will tell you that, until very recently, one had to wait for a retreating wave before making a dash into or out of the bar to avoid getting your feet wet! As the sign says: “In rough weather please use the other door”! So – spend some leisurely time feasting on a spectacular view or take refuge for lunch on a blustery winter’s day, cosy up to the blazing fire and watch the bobbing boats through the rain-lashed windows, or join us for an evening meal and perhaps be lucky to catch a full moon casting a spectacular blue light over the bay.
