“Always buzzin...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

A very busy and buzzin family pub located on Marine Parade. Good seating area outside. The staff are always very quick and polite even when they are busy. We haven't eaten here but we see many who do and seem happy with their food. Only drawback is that it can get a bit crowded at peak times. Worth a visit especially for families.

“Poor service attitude and food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped at this place for lunch with my wife and 5 yo son..We both ordered half roast chicken with gravy and trimmings and my son asked for the kids spaghetti.. Also charged a pound for using their PDQ machine...the food arrived promptly the chicken looked deep fried and minus the gravy.. So I went back inside to ask the waitress who told me that we had to ask for the gravy as some people don't want it..surely if its written on your menu it comes with it? And if you don't want gravy you tell them right!?! My wife then asked if the chicken was roasted or deep fried and she assured us it was roasted....10 mins into our lunch the same waitress comes over and tells us that the chicken is roasted then shallow fried for crispyness...WHY!? If I wanted deep fried chicken I would have gone to KFC...If you are advertising family friendly then please lose the attitude and the false claims..we aren't all mug punters..I am an ex chef and restaurant owner..all in all poor!! Avoid at all costs..rude and arrogant for no reason!

Stopped in here for a quick drink and found the place very family friendly. Although we didn't eat there the food that came out looked very good and delicious. They had entertainment most evenings and also a pool table. A beer garden out the back which looked very nice. Also Nemo was there handing out flyers for the evening. Would go there again to try the food.

“Good, but unspectacular pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Popped here as we were starving after a long trip and this was the first place we came to. The pub decor is as you'd expect a seafront pub to look, if a little dated, the service was great the bar staff very friendly and the whole place was well organised. The menu was a classic pub menu, and the speed it came out to us was great. The quality was solid if a little underwhelming but there was really nothing to complain about. Well worth getting cash out of the free machine outside however as they charge £1 for card use, which whilst not a lot can be a little annoying.
