We have had several very enjoyable and relaxed evening meals in this bar restaurant.
The staff are pleasant but not pushy and the meals have been excellent both in choices available and size. Maybe that could be a fault - no lighter bite options for those with a smaller appetite. Unfortunately that doesn't include me.

The woman behind the bar talked down to us as soon as we walked in and we were only asking about the menu to see if it was suitable for my grandson. We had an adequate meal but felt very uncomfortable the whole time as we felt " in the way"

Visited this pub as a couple and found the staff arrogant and rude.
Visited as a couple for lunch only to be greeted with a female who saw us standing alone at the bar only to ignore us whilst she chatted to a couple who were obviously regulars sitting at the other end of the bar. When we eventually got served without a hello and eventually received our food we asked for some ketchup. It arrived 5 minutes later with no apologies and not even a mention of enjoy your meal or is everything ok. I've heard that Frinton is stuck up and this certainly added to the rumours.
