A choice of 10 starters, 13 mains and 8 desserts makes the menu extensive. There are Sunday sittings at 12.00 and 2.30. The restaurant is very comfortably appointed. A winner. Also right on the sea-front...

The whole place on the ground floor is so nice and professionally fitted out. The main restaurant looks lovely. If I am honest it looks poor from outside but is so...

We had an wedding anniversary party for my parents at the Sea Hotel today. The food was amazing, the service was first class and the atmosphere at the hotel was friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommend it for a function or just a meal in the restaurant.

And half portions of starters and mains were available for children. Which is an excellent idea as some children are past wanting children's meals but find it hard to manage...

We haven't stayed at this hotel for about four years. We were going to stay for two nights but on the first night we had no heating in the room despite the valiant efforts of the hotel staff. All of the staff from waitresses, room cleaners to hotel reception staff and porters were wonderful. The fact the hotel has clearly...
