“walk away”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

we went in and ordered food, the worst food i have ever had
only one thing to say walk away
ANYTHING was to much trouble for the staff
you could have hit nails into a wall with the chips
the plate was NOT clean & the manager & some staff could do with a shave & shower
the fish ( if it was fish did`nt taste like it)
never shown a menu asked for fish
were not told we could have cod or haddock
told everyone to give this place a wide berth
did`t get what we order & we made to feel it was our fault the staff & manager need retraning
would have thought it beeing a hotel the standers would have been better
JUST WALK AWAY its the best thing you could do

“Disgraceful fish and chips”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Ordered a large haddock and chips. Waited for just on an hour despite chasing the order several times. Fish & chips arrived - more chips than fish and the fish was smaller than a kiddies portion. The mushy peas looked like something out of a horror movie. At just under £8 I expected a larger portion, bearing in mind the previous day we had eaten fish and chips at Beamish for less money and a far larger portion of both fish and chips. The only thing I will say in favour of this place is that they readily refunded the money for the fish and chips. Go next door to The Marine - avoid this place at all costs

“Great place”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We didn't eat in the Pier Inn but visited twice for drinks. This is a lovely friendly place with a great atmosphere and is well worth a visit.
