 Really bad reception
Went to the ferry boat to have a game of snooker only be told we couldn't because we have a 9 month old very quiet baby not that there was any body else in the snooker room for him to upset or for that matter any one else in the pub I think there was more bar staff than customers absolute crap

I have just had a completeley wasted evening in this 'establishment' to celebrate my 30th birthday. I arrived at 8.30pm, in smart but casual attire, the doormen both let me in with no comment - 1 of whom I have encountered in different environments too. At 10.30pm, I was advised my 'attire was not suitable for the establishment, you can stay but only outside'. Fair enough, I didn`t want too much hassle, I`d had a couple of drinks and didn`t want to get into an argument. at 11pm, desperate to use the gents I asked the same doorman who had asked me to drink outside if this was okay, he told me to '**** off and go on the beach!'. My immediate comment was that if I were caught by the police I would be charged with indecent exposure due to the seafront toilets being closed. His attitude then became even worse and he physically escorted me completely off the premises, nearly throwing me INTO the middle of the road and telling me' if you don`t f*****g calm down i`ll throw you into that bush!!!' I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYBODY!!!!! AVOID IT!!!! I, my family and my friends (of whom I have many) are, or should I say, were, 95% of the custom of this place. not......any........more!!!

 Nice Pub
Nice pub although having a bouncy castle that you have to pay 1 for 10 minutes is a bit rubbish! 1 for 30mins/hr would be better but looking at the people that run the bouncy castle I am not supprised. Pub staff were lovely!

Been to Tom Peppers twice, both times fsr too packed with people pushing and shoving, staff and customers rude, women being sick in the toilet, and with vomit all over the floor in the cubicle and outside. people should be ashamed of themselves. we had to get out of there.

 A beer at the bar and a meal
The bar person was absolutely appalling, my pint was put down, in a puddle of beer,ale running down the glass, there was on beer mats on the bar, I had to use the edge of the bar like a saucer to try to stop the drips going on my clothes.

The pub was very clean including the toilet .

I enjoyed my meal the beef was really lovely so was the veg,, although some of my potatoes were a little hard and under cooked. For the price I thought it was very good value, and the restaurant staff were very friendly and polite. I will visit again pity about the bar person.

Oh, and not to forget The Ferry Boat Inns renowned music nights as well with some great act's from solo artists, bands and karaoke.

A Great British Public House with a nice garden that has some childrens amusements. Serve's good beer at reasonable prices along with a selection of food which includes sandwiches to steak and chips. Highly recommended whether you are holidaying at the Orchards or just visiting Point Clear.

Went for a family meal and were very disappointed with the portion size and variety of the vegetables and for the price paid was not value for money

This is a lovely pub where you are made very welcome. Sunday lunch is especially nice and very reasonably priced. We have been here many times because it is our local and would recommend it.
Tuesday, July 22, 2008Rating: rosettes

Dreadful pub if you only want a drink while they are serving food. Made most unwelcome and told i couldn't sit down unless I was eating
Tuesday, July 15, 2008Rating: rosettes

An excellent pub with some real good party nights this is the perfect place to enjoy yourself what an amazing place to go

I too enjoy that waitress, she seems so sweet and innocent and her napkin folding skills are unsurpassed! the food here on the other hand is of average quality and the prices are quite steep. all in all a nice pub, but mainly because of the friendly, attractive staff.
Monday, February 19, 2007Rating: rosettes

 The Restaurant.
I love the waitresses... especially the one who always laughs. I can't remember her name but she seems like fun. I haven't seen her lately though. i do hope she still works there! she folded those napkins perfectly!

 Robin Hood Food
Having been to the Robin Hood a couple of times i would say the food is up there with the best pubs in the area. Friendly staff and a good choice of Ale's also makes for a pleasant surrounding.

 Good and bad
I think tom peppers is a good pub overall in comparasion to others in clacton, just one thing what are those uniforms about, no wonder all the staff look unhappy, i would be having to wear a uniform that looks like im attending a funeral everyday. I do think though certain staff sould sort there attitude out though especially when u go into Fibbers, not only do u que but then your greated with someone that cant smile and can only say 5 please, a little bit of happiness goes a long way, maybe the till girl thinks she is above sitting on a till, who no's. but once your in the musics wicked and the drinks promotions are good, that makes up for the frosty reception. Please dont change the way you do things, just perhaps a few of the staff.

Brian sorry to be so personal but you sound like the one that needs 2 get a life, at the end of the day you continue 2 voice your bad opinions of the pub yet show such a great interest in it??????????
The website is brill what a fantastic way of reminiscing on the fantastic night you have had, not to mention the amount of sexy men. Gets the thumbs up from me. AGED 24.

The Red Lion in St. Osyth is by far one of the few pubs i've visited and felt comfortable in. You go in and everyone acts as if they know you. Polite landlords with great personalities. There is a wide range of facilities inc. Resturant: smoking or non-smoking, pool room, loung bar, front bar, car parking and garden area, which i have been told, great events go on in the summer hear. It is open all year round and every month there is a new event going on.
Thanks Red Lion of St.Osyth.

 Poor without music
If only they would allow music as well m8, this would give a bit more atmosphere.

 Moon and Star - cheap
THats all I can really say - its not bad but wouldnt spend my whole night in there normally, unless its a weeknight.

Superb drinks prices. COuld do with a makeover tho!
Saturday, December 3, 2005Rating: rosettes

 Peppers - top pub!
My outlook is that its not where you go it more who you are with and I think teh atmosphere in Peppers is a good one.

Good pub overall and its been my local for YEARS!
Saturday, December 3, 2005Rating: rosettes

John Gorgon
 Yes. Quite.
I think this place is pretty lackluster, I can't say I enjoyed it at all. The service was attrocious and I feel that the staff were making fun of me just because I am a transexual. I like to wear woman's clothing at times so please don't judge.

 I love those girls!
I rather enjoyed my meal at this resturant. I must say I enjoyed the chicken the most, especially the sauce which I have to say was delicious. I also thought that the waitresses Fiona Ahmet and Lisa Baird were fit as!

If like me, you are a veggie, choice here is very limited! Usually only 1 veggie dish on the menu, so if it's isn't to your liking, you are stuck!!!

 real friendly
All the staff at The Ferry Boat(behind the bar and in the resturant) are really helpfull and friendly. I have never experienced any problems in the pub and i am proud to say it's my local and probably one of the best in Clacton
