The appearance from the outside doesn't do justice to this lovely hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to find it has been renovated inside to a very high standard. The atmosphere is excellent, it is busy and lively. The food is excellent and the staff provide a first class service. We are walking the coastal paths of England and this is...

Popped in here for a pint and a bite to eat - great location in a lovely place; service was excellent and food was well presented and tasty. Drinks and food all reasonably priced and the place was busy.

The skate was a bit overcooked and greasy, the beans had been re-heated once too often. The ice cream had been left to melt, and...

Have to say that the hostess was curt, uncompromising and outright rude when asked if we could use the dining room 15 minutes before the official opening for a family celebration of my sister's birthday. There is zero excuse for this level of rudeness. I would not recommend eating here.

We hired the small bar for an evening in order to have a school reunion. We also ordered a buffet from the selection. Some people came long distance and booked overnight accommodation also at The Pier. The venue was lovely and the buffet went beyond expectations and was plentiful. Staff were friendly, professional and went beyond the call of duty...

Arrived to be greeted and treated amazingly by the ever so nice receptionist. On arrival, upon surprise we were upgraded to a double superior for free!! The room had a balcony which overlooked With a sea view and the sun shining through the bedroom. Bed could have been more firm as was like a sponge with no supportive firmness. Bathroom...
