We got dumped on pretty hard for about an hour. The wind blew water under our tent but we managed to stay pretty dry on top of our sleeping pads.

The Pub was recommended from multiple people for dinner, so that's where we went next. Turns out they don't start serving dinner until 5:30 though, so we sat around and waited for an hour since we got there around 4:30. I sipped a glass of wine and a Corona while we waited.
