“Great food, great service, great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

We enjoyed a delicious meal at the Boardwalk sat at a table in the window overlooking the beautiful beach. The menu was varied with lots of temping options but we had the pleasure of a Thai special which was cooked perfectly along with a nice selection of puddings. The staff were extreemly friendly and welcoming and service was great. I'd definately suggest a visit.

“This Beautifully Placed Restaurant Gets Better & Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

We've been going to the Boardwalk on & off for several years now..We've had some poor Chicken Dishes only, but continued to frequent the place due to location, Gemma & Staff who are always brilliant, oh, also, the rest of the varied menu that generally can't be faulted..in the last week we've had two Breakfasts & a Lunch..To my surprise & delight, I recognized the Chef, Barnes. You will not find a more competent Chef & thats why the Boardwalk is set to fly..Don't miss out on this soon to be happening place, that sits in the perfect location looking straight down the beach..I should add that Barnes joined the team in the last few months, after our chicken episode lol...We will continue using this fine restaurant for the foreseeable future & for whats its worth, give it a try, you wont be disappointed..Hope you also get as much out of this place as we have & do..It can't be bad for the local shops either as our waist lines start to expand..Take care..

“Great lunch at a great price after a great walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

After walking the costal paths what could be better for a Yorkshire man than beef, mash and a Yorkshire pudding, no stones bitter but I can forgive that, they did have Tetley's. Two bottles of wine and a chatter at the bar afterwards ended a great day.

“First rate lunch experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Today was our second visit to this super bistro-style restaurant close to and with panoramic views over the beach. Our first visit, in high season was very good(outdoors). Today's visit in November for a late lunch was excellent.(indoors). Quick, efficient and friendly discreet service. Interesting menu with just the right amount of choice, including several Starter and Main Specials, clearly using good quality ingredients, freshly and quickly prepared. Delicious plump fresh moules, very fresh cod in a crispy beer batter, crispy chips,(not swimming in oil), lovely homemade burgers with skinny chips, an excellent red thai king prawn curry with toasted cashews and fragrant rice. This is all "proper food" definitely not regular pub grub. Warm plates. Great wine list(perhaps a tad pricey), but food very reasonably priced. Contrary to another review, as a back sufferer I found the chairs very comfortable. Thank you and well done! You deserve to be ranked higher -and I'm sure you soon will be!
