The small bar on the left as you enter is nice sat by the window, overlooking the river and watching the ships pass by.

Nice atmosphere at the Pier hotel with choice of two bars and a restaurant, food average pub prices and good quality overlooking the sea from one of the bars.

Can't fault any part of a delicious lunch I enjoyed today. Staff were very accommodating, smiley and lovely to talk to. The fish and chips tasted fresh, perfection! I was over charged however the waitress realised and brought the money straight over.

Whilst on holiday in Great Yarmouth, we visited Gorleston-on-sea for the day. Pub on the Pier boasted spectacular views of the bay and somewhere warm and cosy to have a drink and a bite to eat. The hotel has a restaurant which serves a wider menu after 6pm but a gentleman (a regular I assume) at the bar said the... More

My husband and I use the Pier hotel restaurant fairly regularly and last night we took a friend with us. The food is good and well priced. The location is excellent - right along side the beach. Good beer and wine.

The Pier does not do subtle. The food is generous and satisfying. The beer and wines are very tasty. The Bar/Restaurant is popular so expect noise and bustle. They allow children so expect to share .... everything!! If you can accept these then you will have a good time. If you want peace, quiet, sophistication, then go somewhere else.

Visited this establishment on 9th August after hearing good reports of it from people. We found a table outside, went in got menus to order from. Stood at the bar for 5 mins and i thought how miserable the staff looked who were working behind the bar. Young girl came to take my order I started asking for drinks and... More

My wife and i visited the Pier Pub and Hotel for a Sunday snack around 2.30pm. It was busy as usual and luckily found a table opposite the Bar. We chose The Club Sandwich at just under £8.00 and a portion of chips. This is just enough for two - a Club Sandwich Share, i call it. There are three... More

We had a lovely cod and chips with lovely thin, crispy batter and fluffy crunchy chips, however the meal came with a small ramekin of garden peas which appear to have been microwaved from frozen. Consequently they were soggy and disappointing which made the meal a little watery. Also when we asked for "loads" of tartar sauce and tomato ketchup... More
