Early 19th-c thatched cottage in terrific setting tucked into the cliffs on Appley beach, steep zigzag walk down beautiful chine; two spotless little rooms with low beams, flagstones and stripped-stone walls, old local pictures, fireplace with two-tier mantelpiece, Fullers London Pride and a couple of Island beers, good value pub food including plenty of fish, friendly staff; background and some live music; children and dogs welcome, sun-soaked terrace overlooking sea, lovely walk to Luccombe, open all day in summer, closed much of winter (best to check times)

We only popped in for a beer - there were two well-kept Island brews on draft - towards the end of lunchtime, after visiting The Chine, but were made very welcome, and the food we saw looked to be good, basic pub grub. We did overhear one of the regulars being told that things hadn't been easy recently, but we hope that this pleasantly quirky spot, small as it is, will manage to survive; it would be a shame to lose it.
