The thing that strikes you about The Pub on the Pier is the contrast between the exterior and interior. As you walk in you are greeted by a modern, smart décor and the staff look very smart in matching uniforms for the girls and smart waistcoats and ties for the men. All staff were polite and cheerful and the service very quick. The menu is varied and portions plentiful and cooked fresh. This is the sister pub to The Pub on the Prom in Great Yarmouth, both well worth a visit for both food and drink.

We had a meal here and the staff were very helpful, finding us a table as there were several of us and they were very busy. The menu was very good - choices for children, plus specials of seasonal food as well as bar meal staples. It was well cooked and served very quickly. Highly recommended (and the beer was excellent)

As a local I do not stay here (read the hotel reviews for more info) but have eaten lunch and evening on a number of occasions. The menu although it looks standard, (the bar and restaurant menus are virtually the same) is well balanced and the quality of food is very good. Check with the specials menu for extra choice.Becoming a favourite with many locals and visitors this is well worth a visit or even a detour. Decent selection of beers including real ales.
Excellent staff, good food, good value. It is a place that you can feel comfortable in and if the main bar seems too busy there are a few quiet corners.

After going for a lovely walk along the prom at Gorleston decided to nip in for something to eat at the pub on the pier as heard good things about it.Very clean and modern interior with plenty of staff in smart/casual shirts and trousers giving a weatherspoons chain feel.Plenty of places to sit and eat with lots of different areas but we choose near the bar and orded cesar salad and skate with chips
Wife a bit disappointed with bowl size when the meal turned up but found it filling and i enjoyed the skate.Overall impression was good and would go back as plenty of free parking.Views over the beach make the pub along with the service.

A favourite of ours now in Gorleston, great friendly service and lovely food. It was our third visit and the food has been excellent every time. The waitress recognised us and even remembered what brand of gin I liked! We took our ten year old son this time and he loved the seafood platter. I will definitely be recommending it all my friends and family.
