A lovely village pub with lots of traditional atmosphere - not just the old-pub styling but genuine history and character. Menu is good, though the range is a bit unimaginative being mostly comprised of the usual pub staples. The specials board however featured several nice local produce options, particularly locally-caught seafood. Service was friendly and very quick. Would go again.

We are local people and use this pub when we go to the beach...we had lunch there a few weeks ago and it was ok!!! We normally come away having had a lovely meal but not this time. They clearly been busy with the extention which looks lovely but I think the menu could do with a change. ....same old!!!

No problems here. It is what you want and expect. Proper welcome, nice drop of lager and good food. What more do you want? I just want a good pint, respectful service and a decent, timely meal. It's all here.

I have been to the fishermans return many times but this time was disappointed!! I ordered a chilli jacket potato with cheese (only 2 vegetarian options now!!!) & it was sooooo spicy. It nearly blew my head off!!! :-/ The cheese was forgotten even though I'd paid an extra £1 for it! Also.... What happened to the salad & coleslaw... More

Great choice of food and drink with brilliant service. The pub is nicely located so you can take a nice walk along the dog friendly beach. Always go and will never stop. The pub is well know for filling up fast so get there early as it will fill quickly.

We had a wonderful stay here over the Bank Holiday weekend. The pub was busy but the staff could not have done more for us, they were very friendly and the accommodation and food were excellent. The bonus was that the pub is dog friendly and our pooch was most welcome. A beautiful location, a great pub, good food and... More

Have been to this establishment many times and usually enjoyed our visit and food but was hugely disappointed a couple of weeks ago when I went there with some friends for a meal and a drink. The Fisherman's Return is certainly popular and was packed with folk at six thirty in the evening. Just managed to get a table and... More

We stayed at the Fisherman's for only one night but wish I could have stayed longer. When we arrived we were led up some temporary stairs as some renovating was going on and I feared the worse. I could not have been so wrong. The room was stunning, so much care and detail has gone into it and it really... More

This was our second holiday in Winterton-On-Sea staying near this pub so we had visited before and had nice food last year. We chose not to take our dogs with us but dogs are welcome inside as well as outside which is really good. The pub always have a specials board but we had reviewed the menu online before we... More
