Thankfully this pub is now under new ownership. The pub has been completely renovated and offers a warm and friendly welcome with good pub food at reasonable prices. Do give this place a try it is a welcome addition to shoreham by sea.

Used to come here when visiting my son and family. Loved the place. Sadly has gone down very much. We asked are you still serving food and the response is yeah ( half heartedly) half of the menu was off. Service not warm or welcoming. (In fact very cold). We then asked for desert out of 10 deserts only 2... More

The service was discrete but good with friendly waiting staff. The food was enjoyed by all from 9 to 72 yrs, The chef was quite happy to vary the dishes on request to suit each person. Classic, good, up market pub grub.

Must admit I have a soft spot for the Amsterdam having been a patron as a schoolboy at Lancing College back in the late 70s, but I'm sure there must have been numerous changes in ownership since then. Whoever the owners are now they are doing a fine job. Great staple pub lunches and dinners offered at very reasonable prices.... More

We had an excellent meal with very good service. This restaurant is now under new management and we would highly recommend. The furnishings are rather tired but they can only improve these if they start getting more customers

This was our first visit with some friends for a evening meal under the new management. It was quite as usual and the menu a little limited but a reasonable selection. There was a little delay in the food arriving but it was well worth the wait. The wait was probably due to the fact it was all freshly cooked.... More

Had a really nice fish and chip meal here on Friday evening. The bar was quiet which was surprising but the food was good. Great place to come for a meal if you are in the area. Excellent service too
