Visited on a monday night with my wife and two friends as we were enticed by the half price lobster offer. Its a very nice fine dining restaurant with very comfy swivel chairs. Overall the food was very well prepared although there were some minor errors such as undercooked new potatoes for one of the party. Mostly all the food... More

Visited the restaurant for an evening meal with my partner during the lobster bonanza promotion. The restaurant was busy, as to be expected, but staff were attentive, efficient and working with a smile on their faces making the experience a real pleasure. I ordered the lobster thermador and my partner had steak with lobster, all of which came to under... More

We reserved a table upstairs in this trendy Hotel restaurant. The "Milsom " decorations are modern, if slightly cool but with lovely details. The comic "weather forecast" broadcast in the gents engenders a mood of enthusiasm for this slightly different refurbished establishment. We were greeted nicely & offered a table looking over the beautiful harbour on what was a lovely... More

Family lunch out and liked the food especially the scallops, mussels and Dover sole. I also liked very much the Muscadet wine which was good value for such quality. The staff were also very polite and engaging but we had to wait half an hour for our starters and the same again for our main courses which spoilt the experience... More

Due to an earlier serious complaint all four of us were invited back for a free dining experience. I booked us in for Saturday evening and on arrival at 7pm we were asked if we wanted to have a drink in the bar area downstairs or go straight to our table. We accepted the latter. Two of us ordered the... More

My wife and I visited the Pier Hotel for an evening meal. The food and service was faultless.. My wife had Skate which was cooked to perfection and my Calves Liver was probably the most tender I have ever tasted. The service was spot on, efficient, polite but not intrusive. Full marks to chefs and waiting staff

We went for a birthday celebration on a weekday lunchtime. The decor is modern, bright and the staff mainly friendly. We were asked what we would like to drink but waited over half an hour for anything to arrive apart from some bread rolls. When the food finally arrived the fish pie was overcooked, small and comparatively expensive given that... More
