Visited this pub for breakfast before heading home and after waiting a fair while the food finally turned up and wasn't that great to be honest. It was luke warm and eggs were under cooked which was a shame as normally the breakfasts are good.

Served their excellent steak, and waitress then asked could I cut it and check to see if it was cooked to my required level. I thought that was good, steak was excellent. Outside is a very narrow but acceptable drinks patio with views onto spacious lawn facing afternoon... More

nothing out of the ordinary. Usual Weatherspoon's fare, large sprawling interior, find a table first, and avoid family meal times. Remember that this place is close to the beach and opposite the slot machine arcades so don't be surprised if the place is full of kids running around!

Been here 3 weeks on the trot for "steak night". Twice Aberdeen Angus, both excellent indeed. Tonight initial disappointment as they had run out. So 8 Oz Sirloin....well, this was a real treat. Melt in mouth.excellent staff, service and great "friendly atmosphere". Well done to all staff. Truly EXCELLENT.

Tuesdays are steak nights at the Talk of the Town. Sirloin steak plus chips and peas and an alcoholic drink is only £7.85. Great value! Its busy, so you do need to book if you have a large number in your party. The steak was excellent, service very fast. You get dessert cheaper as well if you have the specials... More
