Avoid during the holidays!

Usually very good but just not geared up for the summer holiday rush. Very long wait on food. starters came out wrong so waited again for them to be corrected. starters never got cleared, had to go find someone, then another long wait for mains which were over cooked.

The place was dirty with loads of tables piled high with empty plates and glasses, I had to wipe our table down with a baby wipe as it was so dirty. People who were serving the food walked past tables that needing emptying, only 2 people serving behind the bar on a busy Sunday lunchtime so we walked out even... More

Terrible service, bar the overworked lowly waitresses. Terrible manageress-rude and unhelpful...only seems to care that the tills are ringing. Terrible food - overly long wait for a Wetherspoons, our order got totally forgotten and then was verging on inedible. Just plain shocking in every way for a bustling seaside town in the school holidays.

Whenever we stay in the travelodge on the sea front we always come here for breakfast. The breakfasts are freshly made to order and have great offer deals.

Considering how many people were in here we did not have to wait very long for our food to be served. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and food was hot and enjoyable.

The title says it all, and that is not a criticism as when you go to a JD Wetherspoon's pub you know what to expect, good beer at reasonable prices and good pub grub, again at very reasonable prices. It was very busy the first time we were there and took a while to find a table (however the next... More
