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

Unquestioningly a brilliant location with masses of tables inside and out catering for relaxing drink or full scale meal. Bustling, with a brasserie-type atmosphere...and prices to match. Paradoxically the serving process is quite pubby. Scrum at the (smallish) bar where all the ordering goes on, find a table, get your own cutlery and condiments. One end of the bar stacked... More

Hi Gordon Thanks so much for your review. We are "almost there" most of the time but yes it does get a little hectic on the ordering side Sunday lunchtimes! Thanks for bearing with us and glad you liked the ambiance and the food. See you again soon (at a quieter moment!) More

We live locally and have never eaten here. Called in by chance on Sunday lunchtime, had a decent Sunday Roast. It was busy but service was fine, food came quite quickly, staff were helpful. Places with a beach side location often serve very average food, but for the price we were happy. We will be making it a regular

I visited this restaurant in June and was amazed by the view. upon entering the restaurant I was not greeted and shown to a table, I had to find my own seat and order food in another room. I even asked one of the waiters for a drink and was told to go to the bar! The overall experience was... More

Hi We are disappointed that you have left this review in November, 6 months after you visited us. Over this time many things have changed at Inn on the Beach and we feel this is not a true reflection of the experience and service now. Tripadvsior relies on recent reviews to accurately reflect how businesses are performing and improving month... More

First time visit with a friend for lunch. Interesting place, which has a nice atmosphere. Several choices of eating area with great views of Hayling Bay. Pleasant bar staff, I thought £9.10 a little steep for a large white wine and pint of orange and soda. Average menu choice to suit all pockets but there was also a specials board.... More

Thanks for taking time to leave a review. We work hard to make sure every dish is superb, every time and are glad that some of your party thought we achieved this. And yes our fish and chips get great reviews! Our apologies your dish was not what you expected and next time we hope to thrill everyone! More

The Inn on the Beach has a fantastic location overlooking Hayling Bay and with a Southerly breeze blowing, the waves crash onto the shore making this location an ideal place to be. The staff are helpful, the bar staff good but I hate being asked for a credit card to be secured behind the bar. I can understand that they... More

As always we hate to hear that our food hasn't been up to scratch for you as we get so many fantastic 5 star reviews left for us daily on our comments cards. We'll feed back this to the chef and look forward to seeing you again soon to show you how our food should always be! More

I visited on a busy lunchtime with two small children during a kite festival beside the restaurant. I was very well looked after and offered a fabulous table over looking the beach. The food was delicious and the children loved the olives from behind the bar! I booked to return that evening with my husband and friends for a child... More
