“Very good considering its location”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I had low expectations for this place. The other pubs in the area serve watered down lager and chips - typical of a faded seaside town. The pub is on the ground floor and looks a bit rough on the outside. The restaurant on the first floor is a complete contrast. It is smart, clean and comfortable. We had a Sunday lunch, which was good. The vegetables were excellent. Price was also very reasonable - £9 for lunch. So if you are in the area of the harbour and want something better than chips, visit this place.

“Good service”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Ok food, the kids meal was better than our adult meal. The service was good and quick. Outlook in the upstairs restaurant was nice.

“Lovely Fish and Chips”
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.
