“Fantastic seaside restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Myself and friends were in Bridlington and wanting different types of food, Rags served all of our requirements, Sunday Lunch, fish and chips, lasagne etc. all our meals were lovely and we had a fantastic sea view. We asked for a window table but told there were non available (as were another party who came in after us) we were seated in the middle of the restaurant as they window tables were apparently reserved but had ordered and eaten our meal and left and no one came in and sat at the tables. One of the waitresses was fine but the other one was slow and not very friendly. Please do not let me comments re the service put you off, the food was fantastic and it is a beautiful reasonably priced restaurant.

Thank you for your lovely comments about your recent visit I am sorry you were not seated at a window table these tables do get reserved for certain times and unfortunately when we get other diners coming in it is difficult to predict how long they might stay and also whether the booking might arrive early
so we cant always offer the reserved table to them just in case they overlap with the reservation.
I am glad this didn't spoil your enjoyment of the meal.
I am sorry you felt one of out staff members wasn't very friendly this is most unusual with our team at Rags.
If you feel you would like to email me with a date and time you visited I can make sure to follow up with that member of staff about your constructive feed back Thank you again and I hope we see you in the future my email ragshotel@tesco.net

I booked this wanting somewhere with a 'sea view' for a one night stay in Bridlington, which I had not visited since I was a child.The outside of the building was stark and quite intimidating and we entered though a dark bar. It didn't look good! We had to go outside again and up another flight of stairs to our rooms.
What a surprise, the rooms were lovely. I had a harbour view, the rooms were clean and well furnished (and they are updating them one at a time to a very high spec). There were extra touches such as quality tea bags and biscuits and bottled water. I am very 'picky' and stay in a lot of hotels but this one was good. The breakfast was fine, again with harbour views, and I managed an early morning beach walk which is a few minutes away from the hotel. The staff were helpful throughout.

thank you for your recent review I am very pleased you enjoyed your time with us. It is very difficult for us to change the outside of the building as it is owned by the crown harbour and run by the harbour commissioners as we are situated on a working harbour this means we don't really have any say on the outside and surrounding area.
We do try though once guests are here to make sure they have everything they need and to a high standard inside our hotel restaurant & bar areas and as you recognised we are also refurbishing the hotel rooms and bathrooms. Thank you for relaying your positive experience despite your first impressions

A one night B & B visit to Brid with a friend, and were very agreeably surprised as not at all impressed with Rags from the outside upon arrival! However, we received a warm welcome and help with bags, and had quiet, clean, spacious, pleasant rooms with comfy beds. Nice extras: free bottled water (still and fizzy), range of teas, coffee, biscuits, good sized mugs (not the usual small cup), hairdryer, sewing kit, umbrella to borrow, toiletries, sweeties. Front rooms are right over the harbour. Each room and bathroom currently being tastefully refurbished, along with stair and corridor area. Excellent cooked breakfast and coffee, and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Parking right outside. Very good value for money and a positive experience. I would certainly stay there again.

Stayed at Rags whilst attending the Elvis Weekender May bank holiday 2014 with my mum aunty and sister and had a great time . Rooms were clean , location brilliant and food fantastic ! Bar Staff, waitresses , cleaners and management could not have done enough for us and at times went out of their way to make my mums birthday weekend very special .
Even if you do not stay here - which you should - try their breakfasts - , I suspect the best in Bridlington , evening menu also very good lots of birthday parties in when we were there and desserts to die for ...
Trust me my mum can be very difficult to please and she was is one very happy 80 year old lady -
Only one other thing would have made it perfect for her -having an after show party at Rags with one of the superb Elvis tribute acts .... Maybe next year ....

Room Tip: Room 3 or room 5 both v good
