Welcome to The Bandstand!
A UNIQUE SEASIDE DINING EXPERIENCE

    I don’t often write reviews but we had a fantastic meal next to an enormous window overlooking the beach. The food was delicious - we can see it’s run by the same people as Off The Rails which never disappoints - and the coffee was just what we needed as we went for breakfast. We are both gluten free but could still enjoy the Full English Showstopper. I’d highly recommend and look forward to having dinner there one day.

    The food was poor. Little crab in the crab gnocchi and no chilli in the vegetarian chilli. Disappointing.

    The view was better than the food , staff friendly, the food wasn’t value for money . Expensive for what it was . we eat a lot around the island and it wasn’t on worth the bill. The restaurant is clean , staff friendly and views are amazing . The food let it down

    The food has mixed reviews from the family. Crab gnocchi was nice, burger was good. smoked mackerel toast average cheesy pasta was not at all cheesy and the crab and prawn ciabatta or panini was served a stale brown roll

    Thank you for the welcome, food was lovely and all of our party were happy with their meals- we loved the mint water. Unfortunately on the date that we dined the weather was less than perfect. The skylight windows were open and the rain was coming in. The windows on to the beach were open and it was cold in the restaurant. There was a dog (resident dog) roaming around which was distracting to people on our table. Positively the food was lovely and staff were kind and approachable.

    A lovely breakfast in a great setting with great service but we did find the prices of the soft drinks a little steep. Would love to say I would visit again but was put off a bit by the “optional” service charge- we didn’t get the option to pay or not it was just added to the bill.

    Friendly, welcoming staff in a great venue. We visited for breakfast and the food was superb. Freshly made juices and great coffee — the perfect start to the day!
