“Late lunch”
Review of Drifters

Drifters
Certificate of Excellence
Description: 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.

Plenty of space inside for a late weekday lunch now the heat and crowds have gone (end of August). Friendly young staff, but not pushy. Great menu with plenty of choice for veggies and some for vegans. Tofu wrap, sweet potato fries and haloumi fries all delicious. Would certainly go back.

Nice restaurant with large outside area to sit in (which can't be reserved apparently). Always busy, and you will definitely need to book if you want the weekend evenings. We sat near the door and was amazed at the number of people turned away. Food interesting and staff couldn't be more helpful. We will be back (but will need to book!).

We went tonight for dinner and it was delicious. Really lovely chilli beef nachos and very generous children’s portions. One of my children was a little disappointed with the menu as she really only like chicken and there was no plain chicken available so she just had chips. Obviously, my 2 round boys started playing up whilst waiting for food, one wanted a bottle, the waitress brought over hot water to warm his bottle really quickly and he was happy once he got his milk. And my toddler was tired and after trying distracting him and colouring and neither working I resorted to paw patrol on my phone but data doesn’t work here and it seems it’s probably the same for everyone as the WiFi works intermittently I assume because so many people are connected to it. But overall lovely food and nice restaurant with clean bathrooms.

Arrived for late lunch with friends met by friendly waiting staff and picked our table.

Great menu, fabulous gin menu!

Nice restaurant layout and decor.

Ordered several starters as a tapas style lunch! Halloumi fries to die for!

Friendly staff and laid back atmosphere. Not the place to go if you are in a rush....you are on holiday!

Love this place!

Family lunch,

Start by saying that the menu is not for everyone but if you are a foodie like me then you will love it... it all looks fantastic. But it has to be cooked and presented well to work.

Pizza for the boy and humous and bread sticks for the toddler, all home made. Nice. Prawns, white bait, squid, falafels and a couple of mixed salads with sauces and I was in heaven. All cooked from scratch and to perfection. Very well presented too.

Bang on the money, a well earned 5 stars (should be 8 stars to be fair!)
