We had a family birthday lunch here for 10 people including two children aged 6 and 12. We asked about a children's menu but, although they don't do one, they are happy to downsize the meals to suit whatever age. Our 6 year old grandson had no problem with the portion he received. The food was excellent and the service... More

Had a lovely lunch here today with my friend. I had a Dover Sole cooked to perfection whilst my friend had Gammon which she would thoroughly recommend. Portion sizes were totally fine. Really lovely atmosphere, good choice of wine and the service was spot on. Very well priced too and we will certainly return..

Party of 7 ate here Saturday firstly even though we had reserved a table for 830 , the table was empty but not prepared ! Had to ask for a glass as one guest was without one , the reply was " we will get you one when we have washed one up" . The portion sizes were incredibly small... More

I have only ever eaten here at lunchtimes until this evening. The lunchtime set menu is very good value for money. Having eaten here in the evening, I was very disappointed. The serving staff were excellent and the quality of food was superb however, the pricing and portion size was rather unexpected. My partner and I chose the 'Daily Special'... More

From moment we sat down we were looked after by a man called Ben, everyone thought he was the owner as he worked the whole restaurant... More

Nice informal atmosphere, good food and staff spot on. Had the special of the day, grilled pouting. Well done for serving a less common fish variety but in the end I found this just a little uninteresting. A little more veg would be nice. Otherwise everything very good. Nice cauliflower cheese soup. Very imaginative.

Quite delicious, quite wonderful, an absolute delight. Apart from the joy of the beautiful food itself was the knowledge that someone else had spent hours making the wide choice of divine starters and desserts and all you had to do was eat them and purrrrrrrrrrrr. As usual the ambience was brilliant with unobtrusive but very alert service - a signature... More

We were guided to a table of our choice by extremely friendly staff. They made the dining experience enjoyable, being available when needed, but not to the detriment of privacy. The food was only brilliant. The four of us left totally cleared plates. As it was a winter dinner appointment, found finding 81 on the door difficult! - But so... More

We have visited 81 Beach Street a couple of times now and have been impressed with the quality of the food and service. The restaurant is situation opposite the beach and is charming as is its decor and service. All the staff are extremely helpful and professional. We popped in before our first booking to discuss some food allergies and... More
