A busy split level pub with good views from the garden over cliffs onto the beach, and a cosy fire in the winter months. Food is served in a separate restaurant area at the rear of the pub.

It claims to be "Lowestofts(sic) oldest pub".

The pub was reputedly built late in the 16th century to supply ale to workmen building Kirkley parish church.
