I went to the PHT on Saturday for dinner with my family. Having heard it was under new ownership I was keen to sample the new menu. Firstly, Really basic menu, I was expecting a lot more. Secondly the food we did order was "adequate"....How difficult can it be to make a fresh burger unlike the compressed pre shaped from Brakes. Secondly, how difficult can it be to make decent chips. For £15 i expected a bit better.
It wasn't that we didn't enjoy our night out, it was more the fact I expected more. I have sampled the other restaurants in the town and they are probably better.
The service was great and the waiting staff very attentive but really the food needs to be better or cheaper...one of the two.More
We went on a Saturday evening without a booking so we had to wait about 25 mins for a table, but they fitted us in, and we sat outside with drinks whilst we waited. When we did get to eat I was pleasantly surprised; I...was expecting decent pub food, what we got was definitely a cut above that. I had the salmon fishcake followed by four cheese ravioli and they were all excellently cooked. The ravioli was delicious - I'm not a vegetarian but I didn't fancy any meat that night, and I really enjoyed it. My other half had the hot smoked salmon followed by steak and ale pie. A good measure of the standard of cooking is the vegetables and these were excellent. Unfortunately the roof top terrace wasn't open so couldn't get the great view over the bay, and with current circumstances affecting staffing we had a bit of a wait between starter and main. But I'm still giving this 5 stars because the staff were friendly and let us know we weren't forgotten, great pub atmosphere (even outside), and it was great value for the standard of cooking.More
Went to this pub for dinner. Table was ready when we arrived and we found the staff polite and helpful. Overall a reasonable meal. However, we felt that tables were too close together and we didn't feel Covid safe. Be aware.
Positives: Pleasant and attentive staff, well organised and laid out re. COVID, no long wait for food even when fully booked.
Negatives: Quality of food ingredients is poor. In particular the burger and sausages are of the cheap, processed frozen variety and tasted unpleasant. At...£13.95 (plus an extra £1 if you want cheese) this pub needs to upgrade their meat supplier to something much better quality. Burger accompanied by skin on fries (nice), sliced beef tomato and burger relish (fine) and chopped iceberg lettuce (come on guys, it’s not 1983).More
visited the pier head tavern with my family-very impressed with the food and great atmosphere. We all agreed that the prices were reasonable (and after dining in several places during our holiday , all places prices were pretty much the same) . The staff were...super friendly and efficient -Looking forward to returning!More
Feel the food is expensive and small portions. It’s tasty enough, but still felt hungry after, but couldn’t afford more than one course as was £15 just for steak pie, mash and peas. Also £6 for a glass of red wine. Probably won’t eat here...again.More
