The menu is comprehensive: food served all day. We chose from the limited daily specials menu which offered 2 courses for £15, and were not disappointed. The...

Three of us visited the Brasserie on the Beach last Sunday lunchtime to celebrate a birthday. Well, the lunch experience could not have been better. To start with, it was the most beautiful day of the year so far and as we walked into the room we could see through to the sea beyond, sparkling away. We were greeted by...

My granddaughter and I decided that for a change we would meet for brunch and chose this hotel. It has recently been refurbished to a very up market standard, it is calming and tasteful with soft tones of blue and grey and tables with a seaside grainy finish. The brunch was excellent, we chose the granola with berries and yogurt...

A smart new bar and fresh paint job. The staff were really friendly and efficient and the social areas welcoming. We moved to the restaurant to eat and all...
