Deservedly popular Wetherspoons on the prom, with very good attentive bar staff, serving excellent, incredibly cheap real ales.

As a Wetherspoons, my partner was not keen on visiting but we went on a cold Wednesday afternoon and found seats by a circular fire. We had, very good, chicken with drinks and I think it's safe to say, her attitude has changed.

Wetherspoons heralded its new menu but when we went in on Sunday lunchtime, it seems to be just an excuse to put prices up and choice down. No Sunday menu any more and the 2 dishes for a certain price has gone. So we decided not to eat. From the comments from those at nearby tables, it is clear others... More

Dropped by for a drink and lunch, we usually go to the Velvet Coaster. It was very busy the Bar staff are friendly drinks prices good. Ordered a Empire Burger, pretty underwhelming when it arrived, was expecting more for £10.30 , lettuce had seen better days and it wasnt much bigger than a standard McDonalds. Fries ok and a couple... More

Not bad prices for beer considering it is a sea side bar right on the front. standard pub grub. staff friendly, but manager was interviewing candidates for a job on the table behind us which i thought must have been a nerve wracking experience for the applicants, surely a place as big as this had a private space to conduct...
