“Never judge a book by it's cover!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

This isn't your typical pretty sea side pub. But both the food and beer were excellent and on a par with more trendy or "prettier pubs" locally. The shore inn seems to remain loyal to it's locals as well as serving great food such as home made fish finger sandwiches, local crab on toasted sour dough, or a variety of local fish. 6 real ales on offer as well. We'll worth a visit.

“GREAT ENGLISH PUB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

This is a great English pub, thriving, busy and with very friendly staff. A rarity these days. We didn't eat here just drink but the place was welcoming and had a good atmosphere. Very worth while visiting.

“Good Atmoshpere, Great Food...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

The atmosphere at the Shore has improved greatly over the last couple of years, serving great food and providing a friendly service. But, some of the furniture is old and tired and could really do with being replaced.

Food is only served at lunchtimes, except Friday where they offer an evening fish menu. We ate their last night and it was packed. There was a really good choice of fish dishes and the food the 7 of us ordered was all very good. For example we ordered: Mussels, King prawns, Sea Bass, Sea Bream, Dover Sole, Cod, Haddock and Monkfish green Thai curry with either rice, sauté potatoes or chips and some veg.

Some basic puddings were on offer, but what was ordered was enjoyed by each of our the group.

They do have an outdoor seating area and in the summer this is always busy. One area by the door can get filled with smokers which is not that nice, but better they are outside.

This is the best pub in East Wittering, close to the beach
