Sunday brunch was lovely. 2 tasty breakfasts, tea & coffee for under £20 is great. Especially with the quality. We will definitely visit again - need to try lunch menu next 😊.

Have been coming here for several years as it's provided something a little different, with great food and a quirky but slightly upmarket atmosphere. We booked a table expecting what we had come to know and love, only to find that it has been transformed...More

We realised that Pier 9 had been slightly down-graded to Cafe Zanzibar and that it wasn't going to be exactly the same as before. They had certainly made savings on the menu printing, unusually photocopied as it was, black and white, on a single piece...More

I came here with my Mum and her cousin from France expecting refined dining. What I got was a menu on a flimsy piece of paper with no starters, the waitress pointing to the light bights as the starters. The music was radio one-ish. The...More

We went to the hotel before our meal just to check out the menu. We had a really friendly welcome and the place looked great. Bright and decorated nicely. We were given a drink on the house and remembered well on our return for dinner....More

The award winning Restaurant combines classic Victorian elegance with contemporary 'beach chic'. thick, white-washed drift-wood tables, a gorgeous white baby-grand piano, all set against calm white walls adorned with big decorative mirrors and menu boards showing the morning's catch of fresh fish. The perfect setting has been created in which to enjoy the culinary know-how of the Pier Nine team. Ben Krikorian, the head-chef, is young and hungry. He works with a passion that is evident in the visual presentation and flavour of everything that leaves the kitchen. From mature Sussex fillet steak to sea bass,crab,clam, champagne linguine(not to mention delicious vegetarian options), each dish is produced with love, and delivered by friendly waitresses who are more than happy to recommend a particular wine or just stop for a chat!
