Originally a café whose owner served in the North Africa campaign, hence the name. Now an atmospheric pub run by the same family since 1961, it is very much at the heart of the local community and raises huge sums for charity every year. Large picture windows overlook the sandy beach just 50m away. It is naturally very busy in the season, but boasts a large beer garden, a spacious main bar and a separate family room, all of which prevent any feeling of overcrowding. Parking is limited, but there is ample pay-parking at the rear. Locally sourced food is prepared and cooked on the premises, with fish featuring prominently on the menu. Accommodation is in seven ensuite rooms.
