“Excellent setting/delicious food”
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.

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.

I had been recommended by friends and they were right! I have eaten on my own, with family and have taken several sets of friends to spread the word. Always great service, friendly and helpful staff and food is always excellent. Sometimes a wait as small restaurant and kitchen but staff always communicate this and always worth the wait. Look forward to coming back in December.

Have visited a couple of times and at different times of the day. Lovely atmosphere. Especially on a sunny evening. Interesting menu with great veggie choices.

We visited today for breakfast. We were greeted by a young lad with dreadlocks who was very friendly but didn’t seem to have a handle on what was going on.
We were told there would be a half hour wait for food as there was an issue with one of the fryers. It was quite busy but there were empty tables and we didn’t expect much of our breakfast to be deep fried.
The menu looks amazing and has lots of different breakfast options on it so we felt quite smug that we’d stumbled upon this place after wandering on the beach.
We ordered drinks and were told our food order would be taken “in a bit” when the kitchen were ready for it.
The coffees came out in dribs and drabs but were tasty and eventually we all had a drink.
When we ordered our food the waitress seemed a bit flustered, probably because she seemed to be one of the few staff actually doing anything.
The food that came was tasty but it came out in stages and one of our party’s breakfast never arrived. (There were only 5 of us.) Nobody came to check that our food was ok. By the time we decided to ask about it, 2 people had finished so we just asked for it to be taken off the bill instead. One breakfast was also missing bacon but it was so over cooked on other breakfasts that we didn’t ask for any.
Nice looking place but poor staff, slow kitchen and overpriced for what you get. Go to Billy’s in Bracklesham instead but you’ll need to book.
