Looks basic outside but go in and enjoy the urban chic interior, cheerful service and great views. Lovely risotto. Good range of beers, but sadly was driving. Very cosy for our winter visit: no doubt even more fun in the summer.

This has to be a perfect location. We visited for lunch on 2 days while we were in Hayling Island The homemade soup was very good and the barstaff were friendly. We will definitely go again on our next visit

We always stop here for a quick drink after a day in the waves. Always nice to sit by the log burner and take in the views. Must try the food soon.

The service, food, atmosphere and views are all excellent. This is my fifth visit to this establishment and each and every time I have been impressed by everything. So impressed, I decided to come on here and tell everyone. Very highly recommended restaurant and bar with a good mixture of different foods that cater for all.

Second visit to Inn on the beach. Last time was an evening meal, today it was lunch for 3 of us. The only negative for us was having to go upstairs - the 80 year old with us can still manage stairs albeit slowly, but it is worth it for the view when you get there. On a cold December... More

I was part of John's group of 25 and would agree with all he has written and just add a bit. From the moment of arrival the service from the manager and all the staff was attentive, thoughtful and polite. Congratulations to the manager for a good choice of staff and I imagine good training. There was a choice of... More

We called in here for a Mid-day snack on a cold damp December day, and boy were we pleased to see the log stove sending out copious waves of heat, whilst looking out over a fog-bound sea. As they were busy we had a wait for our food, but it was well worth the wait !! If you are staying... More

Call me biast but you can't beat being sat inside or outside with a view over Hayling Bay at any time of year in any weather. Like many I've seen this property change hands and looks over the years and I think it's fair to say that it is the best that we've ever had. I went there last Saturday... More

We decided to visit this place whilst walking along the seafront in need of a pint. Expecting an ordinary looking pub from the outside we were suitably impressed as soon as we stepped inside and went up the stairs. It was really nice inside and we settled at a table near the bar with amazing views of the beach. Instead... More
