“Post Movie Supper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We had a voucher for the Pier and had not eaten there before for the weekend dinner menu.

After les Miserables at Cineworld this was a great quick supper at 8.00 pm. Food well cooked and service excellent and honest. Maitre de was very prominent and available.

Will come back - why would anyone want to have the TGI Friday/ Harry Ramsden's plastic stuff when this little gem is so near.

Thanks! and will be back when the right movie is on.

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

We had dinner at the Pier Bistro on a Saturday evening in early January. The menu had a number of delicious options and service was good.

The complimentary fresh bread and olive tapenade was a nice touch.

A great place to try instead of the other surrounding chain restaurants. Expect to pay around £13 for a main course.

“Lovely setting,food and staff were friendly too.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

I took a patient here for a outing and they could'nt have been more helpful with our requirements. It was busy and active Cafe yet the service was excellent.

Quality of food was good.

Only complaint is the Homemade Onion Rings were served on a plate without a napkin so looked very oily, perhaps a napkin on the plate then put the ORings on top so the oil is soaked up.

Would visit again and would reccommend.

“Coupon Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The restaurant is very smart although quite small. We could only have the burger, chips & salad as it was a voucher meal but it all tasted very nice. Was a bit worried about not being asked how we like our burgers but as it was they were yummy.
The waiter was very pleasant and professional but it might be nice if he was a teeny bit less formal.
We were also given a complimentary pre-starter of some tomato bread with 2 types of humus which was interesting - love getting these free wee tasters.
