Kevin was lovely though, he was the... More

Nice reasonably priced lunch at The Pier Bar - we enjoyed the food, and the location / view is fantastic. Easy parking adjacent to the shopping centre, so suggest you have a gentle stroll around the area and then enjoy a cold beer and a nice lunch. Very surprised if you dont enjoy a couple of hours at The Pier... More

This place has a relaxed yet fun vibe perfect for catching up with friends over a meal and beverage. Staff were friendly, service was quick and although place was busy it wasn't too crowded.

The Pier Bar is a fun place to have a drink, people watch and enjoy the scenery.
