Visited late Saturday afternoon, quiet pint in the garden terrace overlooking the sea, fab view of the coast & the birds in flight. Good pit stop for a drink on the pier

Ok, so it's a bar selling bar meals and snacks like burger or hotdog and chips and fish fingers for kids bit I have had better hospital food lol. The sausages were were vile, the chips were soggy and cold and the beans were dry... More

Even on a windy day this bar was busy. Nice seating area overlooking the sea. Staff were friendly. Could do with an upgrade but a good place to have a quick drink.

Very nice bar which is on the Pier, staff seem friendly but seemed to be under staffed on our visit. The bar as Skytv and was able to watch the football yesterday afternoon. Worth a visit for a pint.

However inside it is quite dark and dingy, it looks like it could do with a modern facelift. The staff were always friendly though and was good that... More
