Used to be a regular in here 15-20 years ago. Mostly for drinking but also sometimes for food. Had lunch today the food was perfectly good and good value at 7.95 for 2 courses. My wife had scampi which was nice and I had the ham egg and chips. My only complaint was that the fried eggs were rock hard... More

Every time my partner and I have visited in the last few months I have been very disappointed at the state of the beer garden. Having visited today there were at least five vacant tables outside which were full of empty glasses and dinner plates. What made it worse was the staff were bringing food out and just walking straight... More

......would pay dividends at the Spyglass and Kettle. It is important to remember that the S&K is not a hotel with a public bar but is a pub/restaurant with 8 letting rooms - a subtle difference in priorities. We stayed for two nights in room 4 and saw none of the other 7 rooms which may well have been better... More

These places always seem to be gloomy inside! No idea why! The food however was lovely! Steak sammiges with crispy chips and soft seeded bread. Staff seemed busy and helpful though didn't have much to do with them. Try to sit by the patio - you get less gloom and more views!

This is a busy pub. It's success as a venue is what causes a problem we have encountered on the two occasions (sept 2015 and June 2016) - appalling service. Well it's hard to call it appalling - more like non existent. Tables covered in empty glasses, food remnants and glass rings on the table don't bod well, but you... More

Lovely location opposite the beach. Parking poor as its a very popular pub it seems for locals. Narrow stairs going up to rooms no lifts!!! Room was very dingy and small but did have everything you needed and was clean. We used the restaurant food was very good but lots of dogs roaming around a bit off putting. Breakfast was... More

I opted for the pork belly with mash and seasonal vegetables. Food arrived and mine looked well... More

A good value menu.. Drinks reasonable too. Eating space is generous, with differing areas - some cosier and darker, others near the windows are lighter, with a pleasant outlook to the overcliff drive. Tables aren't crammed together.

At the time of the booking it didn't fully click that we were booking to stay above a pub but as it turned out we didn't have anything to fear. Yes there was live music on (stayed on a Friday & Saturday) but it didn't feel particularly loud; it didn't stop my 5 year-old from going to sleep and bang... More

Very comfortable stay. Rooms spacious and tastefully decorated. Beds really comfortable including the sofa bed. Food delicious. Rooms sound proofed so noise from live entertainment didn't disturb. Staff very helpful arranging sausage sandwiches in morning for early start. Overall enjoyable stay
