Each time we’ve visited the East Beach, we’ve had lovely food and delightful service. The fish & chips is without doubt the best in the area....if not the cheapest. That said, the menu is varied and well priced. Highly recommended.

This is such an iconic building and walking in does not disappoint either - it's just as incredible inside especially at night. The fabulous curves of the interior are lit beautifully creating a really atmospheric and cosy place to be. The food is also far...More
