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.

This very old pub in Angle is absolutely wonderful, so much so that we returned four nights in a row! It is a beautiful building set near a charming village with a great beach down the road. The pub features a warming fire in a wonderfully old fireplace. The beer garden is of a large size with a nice view. The prices are unbelievably reasonable, in fact I was amazed at the low cost of drinks! We had an evening meal which was outstanding from presentation to taste. All the employees, especially the landlord were extremely friendly and excellent hosts. We had a great time and intend to stay in the pub next time we go on holiday. I thoroughly recommend a visit if you're in the area!
