“Pizza with style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

IT was a cold winter's evening, and there weren't many diners. I had a great pizza, though, with a couple of rather good glasses of wine. Service was good without being overbearing, even though it suddenly got busier at one point.

Hi doc_M!

We want to thank you - even if it is a little late! For taking the time to let us know about your experience with us on tripadvisor. It's always nice to hear that customers such as yourself are able to enjoy the food, beverages, and service we can provide. Being such an unpredictable and seasonal area it can sometimes become quite busy out of nowhere and be over just as quick, it's lovely to see that you were still taken care of professionally even though this occurred.

Feel free to pop in again if you're ever around!

Warm Regards, the team @ The Fat Seagull.

Hi Lisa W,

It is unfortunately a little belated, but we would like to thank you for your review on your take away fish and chips nonetheless.
We're glad you found our portions to be ample, and the range of choice to be large enough.
We welcome you back anytime for take away, or dine in!

Warm Regards, the team @ The Fat Seagull

Got a couple of take away pizzas to eat down by the beach. Service was quick, pizzas were OK, but nothing special.

Hi Grumpy_academic,

Even though it is belated, I would like to thank you on behalf of the team at The Fat Seagull for taking the time to leave us a review on your take away experience!
Naturally, I am a little disappointed that you found our pizzas to only be 'OK' as we strive to provide above average food for everyone. In the recent months we have altered our pizza recipes to improve them for the enjoyment of all customers. We hope that you will join us again for dine in, or take away from our menu!

Warm regards, the team @ The Fat Seagull
