Description: Originally built as a fisherman's cottage over 200 years ago this building stood alone with the beach coming right to the front door long before the big hotels were beginning to appear on the promenade. Today still holding on to its character it is a English Steakhouse serving only the best British beef aged for 31 days. Along with the wide range of steaks we also serve several chicken, fish and a few pasta dishes including some vegetarian options. The Eating Inn has been run by the same family for almost 40 years and our team of servers, most of which are family are always going the extra mile to ensure our customers have the very best experience possible . Please book to avoid disappointment, and we will look forward to seeing you soon!

This was our 3rd visit to the Eating Inn and we wasn't disappointed, the food was excellent and I believe it's better than Miller & Carter both in quality and cost, we will definitely be returning thank you

I've given an average rating for this one reason. You've got the food of Miller & Carter and the service and etiquette of Wetherspoons. For the prices Eating Inn charges, people expect a little more appropriate service. Either they are a Wetherspoons with excellent food or refined eating with crap service. Come on guy's get it together!

Came for a special occasion with my daughter this weekend and was amazed once past the lack of FOH. The steak is simply perfection and the staff were very hospitable and helpful. We loved it so much we came back the following evening. So far this weekend spent £300 there and not one penny was wasted. On our last night got to meet the GM and kitchen staff. Amazing people with great stories to share. Staff 11/10 food 12/10. To the owners: the only thing missing is a good FOH to organise what is otherwise the best steakhouse I've been to. Thanks to Lucy, Lily sends a hug 🤗
