“We were staying up the road in a self catering cottage. Well after one dinner at the Pierhouse...any thought of self catering went out the window as we came back night after night for superb food, beautifully cooked, reasonably priced, and with just the best views in Britain. Big mention to lovely staff too... we were never kept waiting long even on Good Friday when holiday crowds and hot weather put them under real pressure. A national treasure.”
