We noticed that the Waterfront Brassiere had a new name and signage displaying they now offered family friendly dining, we were playing at the park and thought we would go in for lunch. It was May half term week and the beach was busy, at midday we entered the restaurant and there was only one other occupied table. In hindsight this was a good indication to what we could expect as was the lukewarm reception. We had a waitress who wasn't able to answer our questions about the menu, and it took an hour for the food to arrive. Drinks service was slow and came in parts. The children (aged 1) started to get bit agitated waiting so long (they were hungry), so when we were finally served the food we were told we could now be quiet and stop scaring away the other customers (there were now two occupied tables!). One meal came without the peas that were part of the meal, the chicken pie came with beef gravy and the childrens came with peas instead of the beans we asked for. The burger was dry and spicy, the pies pastry was barely edible and in fact we left most of it. The lady at the table next to us sent hers back and it was returned to her with advise that the pastry was supposed to be like that and she should cover it in gravy. In short, it is not a family friendly experience and it was expense for the quality of the food. A real shame because it is a fantastic venue.
