What a great place, nice decor & a lovely welcome. We ate in the restaurant & the waitress was extremely helpful & polite, nothing was too much trouble. The menu was extensive if a little pricey.

Cannot fault it just simply perfection. Food excellent and a varied plus traditional menu.Staff attentive but not in your face. On Sunday they have a selection of nibbles on bar. Lovely thought.. love the little ditties in the ladies& gents. They change every week and so humorous. Whoever' idea it is well done.

Had breakfast here with my wife the other day as we always go somewhere different each week. The breakfast was very good and cooked well with plenty of variety, but to charge £5 for a pot of tea was too much, this sort of thing should be included with the breakfast, especially somewhere like this. Of all the places we...

Once again we had Christmas Day dinner at the Pier Hotel ( 9 Adults and 4 Children). The food and service we received was 5 Star, not easy i guess dealing with a full house. Lovely to see Rodney being hands on, Margaret for her usual professional manner, and all the lovely waitresses, and not forgetting the chef(s). Congratulations to...
