“Awesome Pub Grub!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Awesome bar food! Hearty, substantial and good value for a change. Great service. Bustling place with a great mix of locals. Would definitely go back on a busy summers day

“Good place with a view of the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Amazingly in a place like East London, there are not loads of places to eat and drive along side the sea, so this is a welcome retreat for those people who like to eat and drink while watching the sea (if you are really lucky you get to see large pods of dolphins too!). Good (not exceptional) grub, good prices, good service, good views. Only criticism is that the slot machines are stuck away in the back of the restaurant and are not very accessible or pleasantly situated. Monday special is two burgers for the price of one.

“Beach bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Great beachbar which is on the beachfront serves great food and drinks. Great place to hangout and watch the sun set and the waves break.

“Buccs on the Beachfront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Seaview, Good food, Magnificent waitrons (Ask for Lisa!) Its your typical pub lunch but with this view and good service there is little to beat it in East London. Lunch times are best as evenings a bit busy.

“Nice Bar/Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

A really nice sports bar, with a nice view over the indian ocean. Food is perhaps not the greatest but also not expected. This is a popular place to go out.
