SquareMeal Review of
The Old Point House
It's great that places like this actually exist outside of sea shanties. Bump along a gritty track past leaning marsh-bound boats & just when you think you're at the end of the earth, there's
the Old Point, its windswept location gaining a sci-fi weirdness from views of the oil refinery across the bay. Don't let that put you off; it's breathtaking, & this age old pub is the perfect
antidote to a bracing walk along the water's edge. Inside it's just as you hoped: navigation charts, antique furniture (rugged, not dainty) & a few weatherworn regulars gathered by the fire in
the bare-floored bar. Expect a warm welcome & excellent ale. For food, look to the long list of specials such as fish chowder, hake with laverbread & cockle sauce or haddock with Welsh
cheeses. Earth-born treats include Welsh sirloin with chips & all the trimmings or local sausages with lashings of mash & gravy.
