The Coastguard is such a magnificent find. The staff are lovely and welcoming, they clearly have your safety at heart and the food. OMG, that pork belly. And there is a great seafront to walk off all that food!

The Coastguard was our first meal out after lockdown restrictions were lifted and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Booking was easy and when we arrived we were met by a very friendly member of staff who talked us through the steps they had in place to be safe. We were seated and given menus and the only problem we had was trying to decide what to order! The sharing platter and garlic prawns for starter were delicious. We also had burgers which tasted amazing and the portions were plentiful. Overall, we had a fantastic meal and service and will be back again soon.

I had a great visit to The Coastguard on Sunday afternoon. The extremely satisfying Fish and Chips was most welcome after a long walk and the desserts were delicious. The service was very friendly and helpful however, they were a bit slow but understandable given how busy the pub was. Overall, I had a great time and would definitely return!

Service was slow to begin with but I think maybe someone was on a break and it was perfectly efficient once we ordered drinks. Food was great and the situation is stunning. I will definitely be recommending your restaurant to friends.
