We were staying nearby whilst we visited a sick relative and out of three in the area, we chose The Beresford and were glad that we did. The staff were welcoming and very efficient. I chose the homemade fish cakes (delicious) and my partner had the carvery (again excellent). Good range of beers and wine and we stayed on to watch the England-Poland match. If you are not staying in Middleton-on-Sea, then this is a pub that you should seek out.
