Have had breakfast here twice this year . First time the weather was very good and we sat outside. The service was excellent and the breakfast great, smoked salmon and poached eggs. We went back two days ago, weather was "early morning chill wind from the sea" so we asked to be seated inside. We had a table by the... More

Positive: nice view. Negative: Poor service by giggling teenagers. Poor food not as described on the menu and a hair was found in one meal, presumably from the chef, who was not wearing a hair net. Overpriced and disappointing.

decided to eat Sunday lunch by the sea and chose The Pier. The service was friendly and the place was clean but that's about it. They don't do a vegetarian Sunday lunch so my other half opted for fishcakes and chips. Both turned up very quickly which usually only means one thing; the meals were microwaved. The Sunday lunch was... More

We could not fault the welcome and service here. Unfortunately the restaurant was cold. We had the Sunday lunch which would have been perfect if the gravy had been served on the side. I am not partial to too much gravy and our meals were swimming in it. So tips to owners - get an additional heater for the conservatory... More

We used to go to this restaurant for a chilled sunday brunch when visiting friends who live in Penarth and were surprised to find it had changed hands and the once excellent breakfast menu is now a shadow of its former self. Forget asking for a fry up, it's now a 'grill up' and, seriously, who wants to cure a... More

I originally visited this b'n'b before it's new management and was a little worried when I saw it had changed hands. But needlessly so. My stay was comfortable, well-attended and the restaurant is good. I'll start with the positives, because there are some negatives. The hotel is flexible on check in, so when we arrived at 5pm it was no... More

This is the first time I've written a review but felt compelled to do so as the food was so bad. It was pretty average before the restaurant changed hands and we thought it might have improved but how wrong we were. Although the waiters were smiley, they were nervous and unknowledgeable and forgot to bring the water and even... More

I decided to visit this newly taken over restaurant (now named the Pier Hotel) for brunch with friends. It is located in a great spot on Penarth seafront with lovely views. We were the only guests so we were expecting good food and service. When our eggs benedict was served, we were surprised to see it accompanied by a tired... More

Only popped in for breakfast as we wanted to try somewhere new in Penarth, but we will not be returning. We were totally ignored for an age. When ordering we wanted to make a slight change to the order to be informed they could not do it. It was one change which if requested we would have paid extra. So... More

I want to give the place a good review. But I can't. It wasn't particularly busy and yet after sitting with the previous seat occupiers dirty dishes for ten minutes I cleared them myself. It was twenty minutes before I could tempt someone over to take our order and it took an absurd amount of time to bring over two... More
