“Lovely Fish and Chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

After walking around the harbour area thought we'd give the True Briton a try, glad we did. The restaurant is upstairs and has lovely views over the Channel. There didn't seem to be many customers which is always a worry but no need to be worried here. The 3 of us chose Cod and Chips with peas, well it is the seaside!
The young waitress was a delight so friendly and welcoming. The service was a bit slow considering there weren't that many customers but the food was freshly cooked and delicious. Between us we had 2 glasses of wine, 2 coffees and 1 cup of tea-all for under £40!
I would agree with an earlier review about 'sticky table tops' but it was lovely and clean. I'd go back and eat any time.

“"This pub fayre restaurant would put some michelin star restaurants to shame"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

After enjoying a tremendous 2 course airshow lunch in this establishment i would like to sincerely thank the chefs,waitresses and the proprietor for delivering a wonderful and hospitable service, after serving the hospitality industry for 40ys as an executive chef i could not find one fault with this establishment, the cuisine was prepared, cooked,and presented perfectly to the last detail, the front of house waitresses carried out their duties in a friendly and professional manner and going that extra mile to ensure the customers enjoyed the dining experience.

I must say it touched my heart to see chefs and waitresses doing their jobs passionately (something i haven't seen in many many years) in restaurants.
