“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Only went into the 'family' area of this pub because we were starving and it was the first place we came across however for a cheap lunch it did the trick. The food was cheap and pretty much your standard wetherspoons type food but the hot sauce for the chicken wings was exceptional and the steak ciabatta was actually really good. Nachos were a bit disappointing but my daughter gave the kids pasta a big thubms up. Service was speedy and really friendly and the wine was so cheap it was almost supermarket prices. With a small soft play area and an Xbox and a lovely view of the beach,Central Pier and Tower this is a great place to visit.So much so that we returned several times!

“Good for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

Great views of the sea, good food and quiet enough for the kids to play on the slide at the time of year we went can imagine it gets quiet busy peak times.

“Good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

Great value on the two meals for £7.45, even managed to cater for a special diet at short notice and no hassles. great service polite staff too. The dining area is upstairs and not in the bar below which can be lively so you are assured of a quiet meal.
