How wonderful to find a pub that caters so well for gluten free dining! Fish and chips to die for. Have visited several times and whenever we are in the area always eat here. Great varied menu for G/F and not made to feel awkward or "different" - they even brought g/f vinegar!

Family group of 4 adults booked Sunday Lunch as a birthday treat..... Best birthday meal for years. All had Sunday roasts with pudding. Brilliant with everything as expected from a well run and pleasant restaurant area. The manager and staff were very attentive and friendly. Would recommend to anyone. Will return more often as we live local.

We loved our meal here, food was about half an hour, but it's properly cooked meals, not like chain pubs. The menu is brilliant! Not only does it have a hilarious piece of personal 'welcome' writing from the owners, but it also contains a gluten free menu which I was extremely surprised and delighted with! The menu was traditional and... More

I had lunch here on a Tuesday in March. The views and the area is lovely. The strange art work at the back and all around the Sluice area is worth a look while you're there. There was a very cold wind blowing off the sea on that day but on a warm, sunny day the terrace outside would be... More

My first visit to Seaton Sluice. Popped in for a quick lunch and was pleased to find a well situated and welcoming pub. Spiced cod was ok - the fish was fresh an delicious, although the seasoning in the (otherwise excellent) batter didn't quite work. Decent selection of well kept beer.

Booked for 4 for a joint birthday and wedding anniversary dinner. The food was way above expectations and tasted great. The service was fantastic and the staff very helpful and friendly. This is certainly one of the best food restaurants in the area. Well done to Paul and all the staff.

Thank John S
