Description: The Seafood & Grill restaurant is a wonderful place to relax and soak up panoramic views along the beach, whatever the time of year, though if you are lucky enough to visit during summer, you can take full advantage of the sea-facing al fresco terrace. It has a relaxed ambience and restaurant staff are slick and friendly. Menus at the restaurant at The Brudenell Hotel are full of seasonal produce, sourced from local suppliers. Head chef James Barber is responsible for creating the appealing modern European dishes on offer; his specialty is good honest food done well, like salt beef hash with a fried egg and sweet potato fries, or his own version of fish and chips. The extensive wine list offers the discerning drinker plenty of choice, and good value for money.

This restaurant has to be one of the best positioned on the East coast with stunning sea views any time of the year. We visit regularly when taking our parents out for lunch as they love the view. Over the course of our numerous visits we have resisted the urge to review on here as we know, as vegetarians, this... More

When we arrived the restaurant was empty, we had a seat at the bar and ordered drinks whilst we perused the menu. The menu is very comprehensive and many of the dishes looked wonderful. When my London Pride arrived, the ale was flat with very little head and had that distinct taste of being towards the end of the barrel.... More

A large group of us met for lunch here. We had a child and a baby with us. The staff were helpful and seated us in a corner and provided drawing crayons and paper. The food was excellent. Everyone liked what they had, I had lobster which was excellent. They do have an extensive fish/sea food menu but do meat... More

We've been regulars for many years, but the last two visits have been a little disappointing. My main complaint on the most recent visit this week was the halibut main course which was tiny (2"x2"x1") with a smear of butternut squash on the plate and 4 mushrooms. Even as a starter it would have been small. It was rejected and... More

Dinner for 2 on New Year's Day. Started with a rather disappointing table but were moved to a nice one at the front of the restaurant. Then had a good meal - really well cooked halibut and scampi. Service was friendly and helpful. We made a resolution to visit this restaurant more often in future.

First visit to this restaurant. It was a pleasant surprise as the hotel looks a bit old fashioned from the outside. The food and atmosphere was good, but my starter of salmon was tiny, although my husbands seafood bisque was a good sized portion. Also my main course of halibut was tasty but small, with no carbohydrates (I did think... More

My husband and I had lunch at the Brudenell last weekend, very efficient friendly staff and lovely food, but £7.90 for a gin & tonic is just a bit much. I have had to mark it down from very good to average for that reason. I will eat there again but I won't be having a gin & tonic.

Good food, ok service, lovely spot. We came here for a family lunch. My meal was good. Others who ordered mussels said they were good, but there was a lengthy delay on side orders and no bread for dipping in the sauce. Would happily come again. A good choice for seafood.
