Seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor we thought a visit for lunch on the beach would be a good ldea. The food was excellent and we liked their policy of bring your own wine . The only downside was that their website gave the impression that...More

Not only is the fish selection worth visiting but time it for a late breakfast or an early lunch and treat yourself to a scallop and bacon roll. Eat outside on the beach if the weather is fine or at an inside picnic table if...More

If the weather is good can’t think of a better way to enjoy a bacon and scallop roll. Large juicy scallops and crisp bacon served overlooking the fishing boats on Hythe Bay.

Lovely place to have lunch - but always CLOSED. How can a place like this be closed on a sunday when there are so many people looking for a place to have lunch on the beach.

We stock up the freezer from here most months with really fresh fish of all varieties. Not quite the selection available in Portugal, but for an English wet fish supplier they sometimes have unusual types of fish available. Their lobsters are really good, as are...More

Used to love this place...but it seems to have gone downhill. Our last two visits have been very disappointing. Their menu has changed from having interesting fish dishes to bacon and sausage rolls. I chose plaice goujons, they were overcooked and the fish still had...More

What's happened at Griggs? Haven't visited for months. Not able to have shucked oysters on site! Not a very fishy menu? Old timers like the bacon and scallop in a roll.... very lacking in presentation. Change of chef/ownership perhaps?? Disappointed.com

Dinner for me is in the evening. So no is the answer. However with summer approaching the opening hours are extended until three. It is a breakfast, brunch, lunch venue. This is good I think. Not too commercial.
