The place is Ok....nice views...friendly service...not expensive but certainly not cheap for what you get. Would I go again.... maybe.... most restaurants in the area are very average if you are used to London standards

We came for Father’s Day and the food was amazing. Unfortunately the food was not good on Sunday. Very basic and not a vast selection.

Really gorgeous food! We all enjoyed our meals and there was plenty of choice on the menu to suit all in our party. The staff were all great and the ambiance was perfect and to top it off was the beautiful sea view! Perfect!

Drinks took 35 minutes to arrive
Even after asking again
Food - mussels good, belly pork good but difficult to eat in miso broth
Basically not enough staff that knew what to do

Had a wonderful meal at The Toad. I’m quite a fussy eater but I had trouble deciding on which starter and main I would order.
The steak starter was brilliant and the Lamb Henry was just as good. Unfortunately I couldn’t try a dessert because I was so full!
Service was quick, food reasonably priced and very tasty

Dined here a few times and food is excellent. On our last visit, our drinks did not arrive, so we had to remind the barman, the sweet did not arrive, so had to remind the waitress after 25 mins wait. On this visit, food still excellent, but service was very poor. Maybe they should have spent less time talking around the bar and concentrated on serving our order.

Lovely food as always, although we thought the food came out a bit quick, we ordered and within 5 minutes we had our food. Some people may appreciate the speed, but we like to sit, natter chill out and spend more than half an hour at the table when we decide to go out for tea. We were seated, served and finished within half an hour so felt obliged to leave the table. There wasnt many people in so im assuming this why it was so quick, however we did notice our table was set as reserved once we left so obviously there were people booked in after us. Maybe the table needed to be vacated quickly, im not sure. However as i said the food was nice, although my fish and chips was quite greasy, definately didnt have time to rest on paper to get rid of excess oil in the 5 minutes it took to cook and serve.

We booked a table, upon arrival we were give a table in the window with lovely views along the promenade. The staff were pleasant and efficient, the food portions were large and wholesome I especially enjoyed the rhubarb & apple crumble.

A very pleasant place to have a lunchtime meal. The menu and service was good for this level of restaurant.
The decor and ambience needs renovation and makeover, the interior is showing its age. I'm not arguing that the overall design should be changed nor 'updated' but the bright lunchtime sunlight showed that the decor, furniture and upholstery was 'tired'.
