Although the pub was operating a temporary kitchen which was fair enough, we felt that all the fried fish goujons were frozen. Perhaps to be expected on a midweek night in December but nevertheless a bit disappointing and certainly overpriced at £10.95.

This place always seems busy, but we didn't get the impression that they try that hard to please the customers, probably because they have a captive audience being the only pub in the village. The real ale was, well, average. The food was slightly better than average, but nothing special. The staff for the most part seemed uninterested in the... More

6 of us ate here last Saturday evening and as usual we all really enjoyed ourselves. Considering there is a temporary kitchen in place due to building work, the food was excellent with prompt and friendly service. The menu has been reduced (slightly) however there is still plenty to choose from and also 4/5 specials on the boards. All in... More

Came here one Sunday afternoon after a lovely breakfast up the beach café. Walked in to be greeted by a miserable young man behind the bar took a good few minutes to get served as the bar man was more interested in talking to the locals at the other end of the bar and when we thought we was going...

My parents come up to Winterton every year and my wife and I now make the trip with them too. We always pay a visit to the Fisherman's Return and this week it lived up to our expectations once more. The food was delicious, the portions large and the service attentive and polite. And all this at a very reasonable... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Fisherman Returns during our stay in Winterton-on-Sea. The menu was smaller than normal as they have a temporary kitchen out front while a construction project continues at the back of the property. We walked in about 7.00 pm and, luckily, found the only available table for two. We were able to place... More

My husband, my friend and I went to the fisherman's return today after a long dog walk on the beach. We normally go on a Sunday so it was lovely to go midweek when it wasn't quite as busy. They are currently refurbishing the kitchens so there isn't as an extensive menu as usual but the food was awesome as... More
