Certificate of Excellence2018 Winner
A family run restaurant and bar, a stones throw from the lovely East Wittering beach. Great cocktails, beers and wines. Interesting menu with something for everyone from Brisket chilli to local Cod loin from the fishmongers. Outdoor seating for alfresco dining. Cosy in the winter, airy and cool in the summer. Live music.

The Boulevard was absolutely rammed when we arrived so we opted for Drifters instead. Great tasty food in a spacious dining area. There is also an outside area. Very chatty, especially about their range of Gin. Breakfast for the two of us was £29

Dining with visiting friends and enjoyed a varied and interesting menu Service was friendly and prompt There was a slight error in one of the orders but this was quickly corrected and the cost of the dish deducted from the bill. Would highly recommend.
