    Shocking from start to finish. We waited 1 hour 20 mins for our food. Unfortunately there was a medical emergency on the beach so staff had to attend the person who was in trouble which of course is awful. When we arrived a person was complaining for the delay in food, this was before the emergency. When we asked where our food was we were told about the emergency and that as way of an apology we could have some drinks on the house. When the food eventually came out one of our roast lunches had no potatoes. The food was nice but the portions were awful for the money and we were all still hungry after we had eaten. We met friends there who booked separately, when our bill came out it was on the same bill as our friends and the drinks that were on the house were charged. We asked for the drinks to be removed and for the bill to be split per table and not on one bill. The bill came back and it was still the 2 tables combined so we had to manually work out who needed to pay what. In all we were there for over 2 hours for a Sunday lunch. The cost was nearly £90 for not good portion sizes. I’m sorry to leave a bad review but this was really poor value for money and we will not be returning. Oh and don’t ask for coffee, they don’t serve coffee any more.

    There was a limited menu (4 mains), this was not made clear on the website or on The Open Table booking, but the food that was available was of a high standard. The service was excellent, but there was a bit of a wait, due to staff shortages, this was made clear on arrival by the staff and via a sign. The venue itself is excellent and the food and drink are great value and I would certainly recommend this venue.

    We went for lunch, the weather was excellent - Sunny and calm - making the setting most ideal. Very friendly service with a smile. Limited lunch menu on the board , just snacks but well prepared and quickly served. Good beer and all prices very reasonable. Easy parking and nice walk through a lovely garden down to the beach. A most enjoyable experience.

    Hi we had Sunday lunch and the afternoon was not as good as it could be , however!! ! There was a sign explaining staff and food shortages and to be patient as much as possible, the staff were very courteous and polite on what was a very busy sunny day so understandable that the service was a little slow, the meal was overpriced for what we received 1sliced carrot, 3 soggy half potatoes, a few beans and some meat it was made to look bigger by a large Yorkshire pudding placed on the bowl, the pork was I think belly pork rather than roast pork, the venue is excellent and the view exceptional, we did tip the staff as they were excellent just the portions need to be addressed ( we stopped at KFC on way home which isn’t a great way to complete a Sunday afternoon out ) I’m sure this is not the normal service and would return again

    Both kitchen and waiting staff were overstretched, we waited 1.5 hours from ordering to lunch being put on the table. Chaotic bar area with queuing for drinks and payments. The food servings were generous and the Thai curry was delicious. Staff very pleasant but, as above, straining to keep up.

    It was very disappointing to find only four items in the menu, and when ordering find that they only had three left!! It was also disappointing that what we ordered didn’t arrive. The waiter has written down two of the same, considering the restaurant was empty it was frustrating. However when the food did arrive it was good and very hot.

    Had a very small menu which was further exasperated by choices which had run out. No kids menu. No soft drinks as the mixer wasn’t working. Service was very slow, we waited about half an hour to give a food order. Gentleman that served us was lovely when he was around, but we found ourselves going back to order drinks at the bar as no one came back to the table. Food was ok, quite expensive for what was on offer and the service received. The pub itself was lovely, great location but everything else let it down.

    It was almost empty and we still waited 30 mins for someone to take our order after being seated. Eventually gave up and ordered at the bar … were told half the already limited menu was not available and then waited a further 45 mins for our food. Even had to go back to the bar to order more drinks ourselves after food arrived. No apologies were offered. Food distinctly average. Lovely location but just not worth it.

    Lovely setting looking over the sea. The food was excellent. Crab cake and the mackerel were particularly good on the starter front. The plaice, the Dover sole and the traditional fish and chips were very good; it’s surprising how often is not so good in many places but they did it to a tee here. Only one minor observation on the food and that was that the salt was a bit too much; for our tastes anyway. The service was very friendly but very slow. Maybe the kitchen staff had been depleted by ‘COVID pings’.

    Visited for lunch on a Friday, family of 5. This place had so much potential, it was clean and beautifully decorated. Our table was reserved and it was a nice cool welcome break on a hot day. Our main issue is that the limited menu, in itself not a bad thing as we find fewer dishes can be cooked well and with finesse, was restricted even further with half of the menu not available. The majority of the fish dishes were not available, at a restaurant specialising in fish, this was disappointing, and the steak was running low so one of our party had to change their order. They had also run out of various drinks so we had to change our drinks selections too. The only thing we did manage order from the full menu was dessert. The food and drink we did receive was excellent, tasty and well presented. It was just disappointing that we weren’t able to have the full selection of food and drink.

    The staff worked hard and once we got to our table the service was good. However the food was very mediocre . We had the burger and the haddock risotto. The Shiraz was okay and the total bill was £55 . Nice atmosphere but limited real ales and probably won't return in a hurry to eat.

    Over priced wine, food did not leave us as locals with a positive recommendation to others. It’s a shame as it used to be quite good. Obviously looking for tourists and not local trade. Maybe the approach will change when the winter comes....
