Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I've been to the Sundial a few times recently and the food has been super tasty everytime. Today we went in with the kids and dog, we had such a lush Sunday dinner! Everything was just gorgeous, cooked to perfection and the Yorkshire puddings were...huge. The staff were super helpful too, defo our favourite place to stop off for food/drinks when down by the beach.More

I have recently visited the sundial for coffee with my pooches, brunch with my friends and a birthday event! All of which I have thoroughly enjoyed! The staff are friendly, easy going, helpful and professional, food was delicious and the effort put in was second...to none to ensure a good time and even more so for those who were celebrating a birthday! Couldn’t fault it! Can’t wait to try the new breakfast menu!More

Ordered 2 double beef burgers and cheese… which were cardboard frozen burgers type you get 40 for £2 from Iceland with half a wilted lettuce leaf and a handful of skinny/ off cut ends of chips (sauce was nice) £12 each… luckily we have 2...dogs that had a long walk on the beach and enjoyed the burgers… Kids fish fingers were harder than the krays and inedible (on a plus they swapped the chips for mash as requested by my toddler which was the only thing he ate) burger van outside the front of the sundial burgers are lush and less than a fiver… wait for warmer weather grab a pint and sit outside with a food van burger trust me!More

2024, under new management and all we can say is 100% positive! How refreshing it is to have this family run establishment on our doorstep. Top marks! We popped in today for some late lunch and mini Celebration. It was lovely to have an immediate...warm friendly and genuine welcome from the staff. The ordering process was easy, menus were provided at the bar and we were told about the specials which were also available. We ordered the tomato, mozzarella and pesto wrap from the main menu (will definitely order again) as well as potato skins and the beef dip from the specials with drinks. The portion sizes were great, reasonably priced overall and the good old fashioned real chips were a delight! All absolutely delicious. Credits to the chef 👨‍🍳 Spotless tables, extremely clean throughout including women’s and baby change (we used both) with everything fully stocked. Well worth a visit. Thanks Rachel, Omar and team!More

Incredibly slow service for a restaurant nearly empty, we were served a bowl of chips very cold..food was bland and not particularly hot again..this is somewhere we will not be eating in again.
