Overview

REFURBISHED DEC 2015 - UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT We are a warm and friendly seafront bar. We serve teas and coffees all day, have a breakfast menu 9am until 12noon with a full food menu available from 12noon until 7pm. On Sunday we serve our delicious Sunday lunches. Please do not mistake us for 'The Promenade Restaurant' which is part of the Marriott Hotel next door. Our bar is dog friendly so if you're a dog walker you can pop in and join us in our snug area ...we even have a biscuit for your pooch! Our staff are really friendly so come and say hello, you'll love it!
