Visited for a friend's birthday meal. The restaurant looks like a beach front cafe from the road but at the back there is a more intimate dining area. Try and get a table at the back if you don't want to be on show to passers by. The food is excellent with interesting combinations and no run of the mill... More

Couldn't get any of the waitresses attention so ate it because I was so Hungry. Then wife had slow cooked pork, but it was very dry and she... More

Went to 81 with a group of 18 and we were seated in the upstairs room overlooking the pier and sea front. We had selected our meals in advance, with quite a variety of dishes. My wife and I have chicken liver pate, perfect, and served on a board with bread, butter and salad garnish. For our main, rib eye... More

Four of us visited this restaurant on a Friday evening, having booked for 8.00 pm, and it was already very busy when we arrived, completely full by fifteen minutes later. A reservation at weekends is essential. Three of our party tried 'Crispy chicken' for their starters and the fourth the ham hock terrine. We all thought are starters were extremely... More

Attended this evening for a meal with my partner. Having been regulars but complained from our last visit, this evening has made me realise it was only a one off as this restaurant is a gem. The food was superb from the pork special to the steak with the main star being the clotted cream cheesecake. I SUGGEST A VISIT... More

We spent our first wedding anniversary meal at 81 Beach Street last night. And we were not disappointed. We went all out and had the most expensive main 8oz fillet and it was delicious. They catered for all needs food wise something for everyone. Was a very busy restaurant so book up early. Can't wait to go again.

The exterior does not do this great restaurant justice. We ate on a Wednesday night and the place was almost packed, the ambience was relaxed but the service was friendly and efficient. More importantly the food was excellent, right sized portions, beautifully cooked and well-presented. Menu is enticing with good options for vegetarians. Excellent chips but plenty of tasty, healthy... More

The outside of 81 Beach Street isn't very striking, in fact you could walk right by it without noticing, which would be a real shame as the place is a treasure. The interior is lovely and intimate, and also bigger than it seems from outside. The menu is interesting and the quality of the good is very, very good. Everything... More
