“Veggie options are delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Much nicer standard of food than the other seafront places, really impressed with the veggie halloumi/mushroom and pepper- chargrilled well and really tasty with accompanying aoili. Was also impressed the accompanying side salad included kale, lovely dressing too. Had the veggie breakfast on a previous occasion too which includes fennal houmous; something a bit different to the usual full-english-without-the-meat that most places serve. Great chewy white bread. Dessert choice is limited but the toffee crisp slice was uh-ma-zing.

“50p credit card charge, poor service but great food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

The burgers here are very nice, 2 beef patties in a brioche bun. Chips are super as they come, no need to add salt and vinegar. Check put the Aperol Spritz... Fantastic...

However, service is slow and unreliable. They kept on trying to bring other tables food and we waited 20 mins for our second drinks order, so we cancelled it. They were honest and said that the order simply had not been put through. They then tried to charge me 50p for using a credit card which they waved when I got cross.

Basically lots if potential let down by poor service.

“A great beach visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Great crunchy chips and amazing cake in a friendly, relaxing and sea view setting.
Had the BLT sandwich which was very tasty but next time going to try one of the burgers as they looked very tempting.
Looking forward to going to one of the pop-up restaurants in the near further. Think this is a fantastic idea.
Ideal Place to come with children in the day - while the children play on the beach or participate in water sports (next door) you can relax, eat, drink, and watch them in comfort.

“Excellent brighton breaky on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Had the full English on a sunny Sunday morning. Great breakfast with high quality sausages and excellent toast (crusty bread toasted rather than sliced branded bread). Good smoothies too!

“Good, but not that good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Had lunch here, outside in glorious sunshine. I was attracted by the 35 day hung beef burgers. I was surprised that my burger was made of 2 patties: if you are using good, local, aged beef, why not make 1 larger patty? Consequently the burger was a little smaller than I was expecting. The brioche bun was a nice touch, but the brioche was rather chewy.
I'll probably give it another go soon, in case I was unlucky this time.
