I went there for lunch and like most of our eatery's they are suffering with a lack of staff so the service was quite slow. Not the staff's fault they were all working very hard. They were also very pleasant and tried their very best but there seemed to be some hold up in the kitchen.

However when the food came it was great and really enjoyed the meal.

We have been there before and its consistently good and I have to say the serving staff outstanding.

I found the chicken dish that I was served to be tough and dry and since this was served with a small side salad and chips it was difficult to chew through.

The Breeze was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! They congratulated us upon our arrival, and had set up a table decorated with confetti and hearts ready for us! The service was great, staff were friendly, and the food was amazing! The portions were huge, very great value! Thank you so much to the staff for making our anniversary great ☺️

Staff were all friendly and seemed a lot of them considering not terribly busy. Been few times before so menu bit familiar and perhaps needs refreshing often. Specials starters look good but mains bit samey.didnt seem to have set staff for set areas so nobody looking attentively around to give service. That said staff very nice and good experience again.

3 of us had modules they were ok not as good ie smaller than previous times but that could be all that’s available the cream sauce was excellent
The noise level is high even with not many people in again we have expierienced this before some curtains would help to deaden the noise so that we could enjoy chatting without having to raise our voices
All in all very enjoyable attentive staff
And good table service
Looking forward to our next visit
Oh and open table booking was good and easy
Thank you

I had only previously been to The Breeze in the school holidays and while this was much better than most places during that time, our experience this week was totally different. Having table service and polite, friendly staff without being intrusive made it a real pleasure. The linguini carbonara is absolutely gorgeous too. Thank you.

The food was of acceptable standard.
We ordered a roast dinner and were served the meat and potatoes, staff then brought cutlery after a couple of minutes, sauces a few minutes later
anf finally the vegetables a couple of minutes after.
I stood at the bar while 4 or 5 staff ignored me for a couple of minutes.
Otherwise ok.

We've always enjoyed breakfast here but yesterday it was awful. The eggs Benedict was terrible - the eggs were drowning in sauce and the fried breakfast
was smaller than normal and not as appetizing. Won't be back unfortunately and it's the first time in 8+ years I've been disappointed.

The Breeze is so accommodating. Staff listen to requests and service is good. Food is good the fridge and chips excellent and mussels were some of the largest juicy ones I have had for a while. The booths and tables are all well spaced and comfortable. If they are extremely busy, as in boat rally times then some things are not always available off the specials board. Overall worth the visit.

Terrible surly unprofessional service from waiters. Meal was dry and uninteresting. Food almost thrown at us. Very loud, not helped by staff moving tables and chairs while diners were still eating. Don’t be fooled by the professional website which makes the food look quite refined, this was not our experience sadly. The location is the only plus.

Im a chef myself (classically trained) Our food was overcooked, Sent back twice and still the same, some food was cold so im guessing a microwave was involved , kids meals were homemade meatballs and linguine pasta overcooked and the meatballs were definitely out of a tin! The only good thing really was the portion sizes , we won't be back, trying too pull a waiter or a waitress was a nightmare they were just stood around chatting and not paying attention as they should to customers , the waiter who delivered the food was just handing the plates to people and not placing them on the table themselves , this is all basic stuff not being met.
