This is about our fifth visit. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food is excellent - we have the carvery. The turkey breast is moist and succulent (we have not sampled the other joints but there is plenty of choice), the roast potatoes crunchy, vegetables beautifully cooked and presented. Really good value for money. Parking no problem. Recommend it... More

Good service and excellent food are a rare combination we have found during our 3 weeks of eating out in the UK. But Shelley's offers both. Pork belly was superb with the crispy skin it promised and soft juicy pork below; the steak was cooked to perfection with hand cut chunky chips and veggies. We could not resist the urge... More

I eat out a lot and have been to Jamie Olivers , Le Blanc's, the Roux and others. Shelley's is up there with the best. I keep finding my way there. Excellent food, nice staff, opposite the beach and old pier so nice for a stroll after. I will be back, and happy to recommend it.

The prices were high for our taste but luckily we hit their Steak Special Night. Two steaks and a bottle of red wine for £25, excellent quality and value price.

Lovely carvey, and have a guess a chef who knows how to make fresh custard to go with homemade puddings.

While on a family holiday we all visited shellys through table pouncer . The filet steak was excellent as was the duck . The drinks were very reasonable and the deserts seemed to be homemade. My only issue was how quite it was which hopefully will change on weekends/peak seasons or when word gets out that It really is a... More

A burger costing £9 was a little undercooked aswell. The waiter though was very friendly and good with children, but probably best to book in advance in a local chain pubs as there are a few around.
