Went here for my birthday, 9 of us. Food was lovely and well worth the price. Can accommodate large parties as well as just couples Outside seating area too, which is lovely presented.

Great location, however the service and course timings were way too slow to enjoy the evening. Three hours for a two course meal had me yarning. Not sure what the issue was, kitchen, staff? Food average, pity as the overall ambience is very good. Need to sharpen up all round for the summer customers!

Had an amazing meal here tonight. Very generous portion sizes without any compromise on quality. The prices are very reasonable as the quality is top drawer! The staff were very friendly and attentive too and immaculately dressed. Great place to eat if you want somewhere special or just want good quality all round.

Hello again, Firstly let me apologise that you didn't find this visit as good as your last one, it's a great shame. Onto your first point; The Soul Night.

Thank David R
Braddicks, Restaurant Manager at The Pier House, responded to this review

Often get comments about visiting us for a nice afternoon cream tea but not so many about an afternoon G & T! We should definitely try and get people on board with this! Thanks for your review, you'll have to come back and try one of our other 25 gins! See you soon, Josh Davies. More
