Popped in for lunch and a pint. Both were good, with staff welcoming and helpful. We ate from the bar menu which had both snacks and main meals available. Drink prices were also at the lower end of the scale. We have eaten here before and have never been disappointed.

Stayed in the Pier last week whilst on a business trip to Great Yarmouth, first time in nearly 15 years. Room was very comfortable and clean and food and bar area also of good standard. All staff were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely stay again in coming weeks.

Had a couple of nights at The Pier Hotel, accommodation, food and staff all excellent, however our stay was let down by the noise and bad language outside the hotel on both evenings, even with windows closed !
