Went on a Monday evening, found plenty of tables with a view out to the front. The atmosphere was quiet and friendly. The staff were attentive and more than competent in their roles.

This pub is always busy and sometimes the service can be a bit slow, but it is popular because of its reasonable prices. It is situated right by the walkway down to claction pier.

Can't rate this place as I wasn't allowed to stay on their patio, my husband and I were asked to leave because we had dogs with us. I've been to many wetherspoons and have taken my dogs in the garden or patio areas obviously Clacton isn't a place for animal lovers

Food was lovely and great value for money. Lovely sea view too. Have been here every time I've visited Clacton. Staff were very friendly and always asked if "is everything ok?".

This is a typical family pub. Food is good and well priced, drinks are very reasonable as well. Only problem is it is very popular and so you might have trouble getting a table.

We arrived at about 3pm hoping to find a table. Thankfully we did and quickly ordered using the number written on a sticky label on the table. Then we waited...people around us got their food, I was even offered someone else's pancakes. My husband went back to the bar to find out where our food was and I asked the... More
