Nice location and with friendly staff. The duck salad was amazing as were the desserts. On this occasion the Sole Veronique was disappointing. Despite this would definitely go back

We have eaten lunch here twice recently. The staff were very efficient friendly and attentive. The food was good and the sticky toffee pudding to die for. We recommend The Pier House to friends and family.

The service we received when visiting for lunch was exceptional and the fish & chips was outstanding. While the restaurant area was full up (it was a Friday lunchtime after all...) we were allowed to eat in the bar area. The beer was great and the views even better. Will be visiting again soon
