The restaurant was fairly quiet so drinks order was served straight away. Good to see my Peroni beer served in the correct glass and not a plain one. We ordered a Lasagne and the Steak @ Stilton Pie. Both dishes were piping hot, large portions and very tasty. No room for a sweet afterwards and we decided not to have... More

Popped in here for a quick pint before moving on for a Sunday lunch. Free parking available, lovely views of The Solent and beaches, friendly service, food and drink available including seating outside. Perfect for when the weather is nice and warm.

Wasn't very impressed with the Inn on the Beach. My friend, my daughter and I popped in for a pot of tea, a coke and some chips which cost us nearly a tenner. I felt that was rather a lot considering the chips weren't very nice at all. I also thought the person serving wasn't particularly friendly. I won't bother... More

Such a shame that this is such a fantastic position on the beach but the food was so dreadful that I can't actually remember when I was ever served anything so poor. Do not order the beefburgers, they didn't resemble meat in any way whatsoever. Next time I'm over that way, I think I'll take a picnic. Wouldn't recommend it... More

Even though I live only about 18 miles from Hayling Island to my shame I had not visited for well over 20 years :-/ .. I had checked out Inn on the Beach through tripadvisor before I booked taking on board round about the first 8 to 10 comments. My meal was booked for 7.30pm and to be honest when... More

Hi and thank you for taking time to try us and leave such a detailed review. There's obviously a fine line between serving food quickly, and not quick enough, and checking back too much/too little which is open to personal preferences. We are so pleased you found our food and staff wonderful. That's great. We apologise if you felt rushed... More

The Inn on the Beach is situated on the seafront of Hayling Island and would be suitable for lunch, dinner or even just drinks. The staff are friendly and helpful and the menu was varied and really reasonable. I was really pleasantly surprised as the quality of the food as well as the portion sizes. I went for a starter...

Went for lunch on Saturday, 9th August. Our daughter is a regular customer as she surfs nearby .Found driving there very suburban but was worth it as the views of the solent and Isle of Wight fantastic. I had crab salad, not cheap, but plenty of dark and light meat. I was very satisfied. The others had pie of day,... More
