We have visited 81 quite often as a family. Recently the service has gone downhill. I'm not sure the reason for this. When we were there we ordered desert. All of the desert arrived apart from my mother in laws. We alerted the staff, then had to wait another 15 minutes to tell them again. The desert was eventually served,... More

Nice atmosphere, welcoming staff, and ok food. My deep fried Brie came with chilli jam that killed taste buds and was not warm in the middle. The steak was ok, but somehow the whole dish lacked moisture. I should perhaps have added a sauce of some sort, but these were an extra pound or two, which seems a bit much.... More

I was very reluctant to return but as a guest I was pleased to find it improved. Still nothing 'special' but the staff were very welcoming and overall the meal was enjoyable, mainly due to the staff & service.. I found the menu not inspiring but adequate and each dish basic and fresh. The 'chips' were oily & overcooked but... More

I visited 81 Beach Street recently with friends for lunch. We were upstairs in a small dining area, there are of course tables downstairs, but this room was quite comfortable. The staff were attentive and our meal, once ordered, was available quite quickly. I had Chargrilled chicken strips with a chilli sauce for starter, this was very tasty and not... More

This is a restaurant of two halves, the front with a view and the back which is slightly more stylish, and has a view of the kitchen. The menu is varied and we ended up having a selection of starters so that we could sample as much as possible and still walk out! The cod bites were amazing but everything... More

Slightly nervous about recommending a place for someone else's birthday dinner but that's what we did. Positioned nicely by the window, so we could at least imagine the sea, and the food and drink were great. If would have been even better had we had time to have a coffee afterwards. Towards the end of our desserts we were told... More

After a long walk and a few drinks, we found 81. The menu was different and at first I thought we would leave as it wasn't for me. However, we stayed and had the chicken and I had steak. The food was delicious but expensive and it just didn't have the kind of menu we like.

Found our way here with 3 golf mates on the random recommendation of a local lady who helped us when we found the Courtyard Oyster Restaurant had shut down - and what a happy accident it was. Restaurant was empty when we sat down at about 7.15, but soon filled up making a lively atmosphere. Two of us had the... More

We booked in advance to avoid disappointment . This located near to the pier. We gained access via the side door not on Beach street itself. We received a warm welcome and were given a choice of where we would like to sit. The restaurant is light bright and airy. The background music was very enjoyable . The service was... More
