We visited this Hotel last year on a day trip to Yarmouth with friends, the outside decked area had only just opened and the Hotel was clearly undergoing a huge transformation, we only had a drink but the conversion looked so impressive we made a note to return this year! So pleased we did! The decked area was fully finished and filled with customers enjoying the great view over Gorleston and it's sandy beach, it was a glorious day and this was accompanied by a wonderfully finished outside eating and drinking area with great modern rattan furniture and glass balustrades felt more like Saint Tropez! We ate and had a lovely selection of well cooked food from an array of menus with great variety, the staff were very pleasant and accommodating and we were served at the table. The only slight concern on arrival was how busy it was and whether we would get a table, we had called a few days earlier requesting a copy of the menu so we could decide where we were going to eat as there are both bar meals and a restaurant, sadly, despite being promised this it did not arrive but we were happy that the staff apologised for this and organised a table for our party of 6. This Hotel is still undergoing refurbishment but if it continues in the manner it has started it will be fantastic and, without doubt, THE place to go and/or stay when visiting the Yarmouth area. We go twice a year for the day with friends to see the wonderful Hipperdrome show but we will definitely be adding this location to our trips!

Came down for a trip to Gorleston last July wanted a decent pint and was pointed in the direction of the cliff. Nice little bar and a lovely view of the beach had a couple and decided I would stay for a bit of grub. Ordered a burger and chips and to my dis belief was served this on a chopping board. I questioned the waiter as I thought they had made a mistake while they were chopping the veg or what not. I was politely told this was normal and was very popular these days not my cup of tea to be honest and at least the chips weren't served still in the chip fryer. All the same it was a nice burger and I continued my night. As the night went on the bar got livelier and there was a good vibe except for a couple of locals having a roll about but this was split up promptly and the owner offered a very genuine apology to the punters at the bar. All in all nice place would be happy to have a few jars there next time im in town.

After a walk along the beach we decided to climb the stairs up the cliff to the hotel for tea lovely outside area with a great view it was quite busy and the food looked great we decided to have Haddock and chips we looked for somewhere to sit but every where people were smoking quite heavily we asked at the bar if there is any non smoking areas outside and were told ' what would we want non smoking areas for?' by the barman so we sat inside I asked for a pint of ale only to be told 'we don't ave any ales' that said when the meal came it was not to bad nice and hot and tasty.
We won't be going there again as a non smoker I don't like being treated as a weirdo and strange for not smoking while I am eating what a shame it looks such a fantastic place and the food was not bad Ok if you are a lager drinking smoker.

Dear Pbax

thank you for your review and thank you for taking the time to mention the positives of your visit as well,

to address your points :-

I do not understand the comment with the ales- we have three real ales and john smiths on draught - all situated in the middle of our bar- for a hotel bar in gorleston this is with out doubt a very wide range !

We are investigating the possibility of a non smoking area outside as we speak , we obviously are a very busy venue so we have to ensure we get this right the first time! legally there is no obligation for a designated outside area for non smokers but we do endeavour to keep our customers as happy as possible so this is under careful consideration

I hope you try the cliff again , as you said it is a beautiful setting and the food obviously speaks for itself so we do look forward to seeing you again soon
