A standard Wetherspoons offering just a couple of minutes from the seafront and pier. Service good and food appeared quite quickly.

Just another Whetherspoons-not much different then the one up the road and around the corner. For a tourist the coffee was decent, some of the better available in town that I've found. Fish Fridays are good but they tend to run out early, so get there early. They have decent value for a traditional English breakfast. The night pub atmosphere... More

Good location yes. Tick. Good atmosphere. tick also. Food - good if you like to have it microwaved, I suspect microwaved but of course who can say... Too dangerous to say too much, but it is friendly and not too pricey. Thanks for reading ha!

This bar is part of the Wetherspoons chain but it is a nice bar and seating is plentiful. It is usually fairly busy even during the day and in the evenings especially the weekends. I have eaten here and it wasn't great but I've probably experienced worse elsewhere. It's good for a quick fix. A decent pint and good staff... More

Nice staff who are friendly and attentive. Nice atmosphere when they were collecting for a children's charity encouraging their patrons to dig deep - this was done without pressure and I'm sure lots of money was raised. Well done :)
