At weekends they have karaoke and live music, especially in the summer season. I think this pub is a 'listed' building'

 small seafront pub
this pub has a new nightclub next door to it -but cannot rate it as I haven't been there yet. Open weekends i believe.
The pub itself is not as good as it used to be 2-3 yrs ago.Very little atmosphere these days.

Went for Sunday lunch with the family on 8th June.
Brilliant food, as always, but it
was so hot in there: no air con or fans. No opening windows, probably because of smokers outside. Ate our meal quickly and had to get out. Most uncomfortable.

 Service That Sucks!
Paid A visit with my partner, we had been wanting to go there since they have re-furb.

point thake that it was a Sunday and they did seem a little busy. Finally after a breif wait were were shown to the smallest table in the Restaurant area. I asked to change tables before we sat and the waitress huffed as if it was a major problem. However we sat at our chosen table.

A quick discription of the Carvey that was on offer and the waitess ran off to deal with some other customers.

After about ten minutes I called the waitress back and asked if she could finish what she had dediced to tell us and take a drinks order as we had now been sitting there nearly 20 minutes.

The food that was on offer was not much better than the service. Firstly the yorkshire pudding that was served was flat had not risen and was burnt. there were others on offer buy the chef thought it would be best to serve up what was left over from the previous serving before starting on the Freshly baked new tray. We both had the beef and in all fairness was not bad once you cut away the 1/2 inch layer of fat.. The Small thing slice was just about ok. The Cauliflower cheese was cold, potatoes - cold, Veg - Cold and finally Grave all 5 types empty or cold.

I sure we would of had a better meal from Kebab2000 next door!

Won't be eatin there again- Ok if you are looking for a Chav family day out on a Sunday, otherwise give it a miss!

 Day pub for the family.
During the day, especially weekends, the pub is ideal for family visits during the day, as well as coach journeys. Evenings, especially weekends, the pub has a more adult-orientated theme.

 Great food. worth a visit
After arriving mid afternoon for Sunday lunch , we were kept waiting for over an hour for our meal, i believe our order was lost ( these things happen) The manager was very sorry and gave a good discount. Having said that the food was superb and at a good price,and in spite of the delay we would gladly visit the Shorehouse again

 Not bad pub
The pub is actually really nice but unfortunately the landlord is hardly welcoming, in fact he is often downright rude to customers and is often heard making racist comments.
