We used to visit regularly but each time we’ve been back in the past 12 months we’ve been more and more disappointed.... service not great and food nothing like it used to be. Afraid we’re crossing this off our favourite places to eat ... Shame!

From the moment we went in, the staff were so pleasant and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We were served quickly and efficiently. We enjoyed fish and chips and duo of fish and coffee and shortbread afterwards. The views were wonderful. Very clean restaurant....More

Mystoo.elf and my girlfriend visited The Toad this summer after staying in the nearby Travelodge. It was a short walk along the promenade and our meals were lovely. The best steak and red wine pie I've ever eaten. Will be visiting again. Polite friendly staff

I have never seen a dog inside the Toad but there is plenty of seating outside and lots of people take their dogs and eat there.
