Cheap and fast. Bit like McDonalds but you get to have a beer! Kids seem to love it here and lots of birthday parties.

We have been reasonably regular visitors to Breakers Hastings for some years now, but after tonights experience we won't be returning. The restaurant was understaffed, the staff were inexperienced, unhelpful and disinterested. The line to order was excessive and took an extremely long time to move people through.

Food was fantastic, really value for money, conveniently situated in the City Centre.Had a wide variety of food and the atmosphere was good, it wasn't too busy, although I think the weather had a role to play.The 'buy two get one free' steak meal deal is worth looking at on Thursday all day.

We went to breakers on my mother in laws suggestion. Been there before and was not bad . This time was different. Very under staffed. 2 staff taking orders and drinks. Took our order and then told us it was going to be 45 minute wait. Our food arrived in about 30 minutes which was ok. My beef is why... More
