We often stop for coffee here, mostly on a Sunday afternoon after walking our (mad) cocker spaniels on th beach. yesterday we took our DFL friends and their border terrier for a beach dog walk and lunch at the Sunset Surf after. It was a really, really nice lunch of bubble & squeek for ur friends and Xmas ciabbattas for us. We were able to reserve a table about an hour before, and the service was nice and quick, with helpful and friendly staff, just hope it stays open out of season for us coffee needing locals!

Spent a very relaxing few hours dining and a good bottle of wine the food was very good well put together and very tasty i had the curry with lots of trimmings my partner had the bourguignon and loved it, cheese board and the chocolate mud cake to finish. Yum Yum.
Everything was presented well and the young waitress was very attentive.
I'm a vegetarian an find it difficult sometimes finding somewhere where the food is to my liking.
We will be back.

We signed up for the Nostalgia Evening (otherwise known as ‘FINGS AIN’T WOT THEY USED T’BE’) last Friday, 26th January, and I can honestly say we haven't had so much fun in years. Chris is an amazing raconteur (unfortunately struggling with a persistent cough on that evening) and we were amazed to discover how much we remembered from the 50s onward, despite some of his testing questions.
There was a choice of four main courses and three desserts, all for the price of £22.50 including the entertainment. Don't miss the chance to enjoy one of the next two evenings on either 3rd March or 6th April.

Becks Fish and Chips

Becks has expanded into a restaurant with bar and lounge area to complement the still thriving take-away. The restaurant area itself seats over 100 people. Becks does not take Reservations, although notification of parties over 9 people is recommended. The main selling point and one of the major credentials is that Becks offer gluten free options. All types of fish (Cod, Haddock, Hake, Plaice), scampi and pizzas are available with this option. For customers choosing to sit in the restaurant there is also a range of desserts on offer that are gluten free. Becks is the only fish and chip shop in a 6 mile radius that offer gluten free products.

There is a reason why the queue is outside the door and heading in to the car park on a Friday night and this is because Becks serves the best fish and chips in the area. We have only ever had takeaways but this is a regular Friday night treat when we are in the area. Good value and portions are large.

Reviewed By Capt_tuBBymAN - Southampton, United Kingdom

Well the title probably says it all but it was an excellent meal. I had the salt burger and it was perfectly cooked and full of flavour, not like some of the cardboard burgers you can get in other places. The sweet potato fries topped it off nicely. My colleague and I also had starters and the chorizo cheesy melt thing is so good, I mean to die for good! Great flavour and I could have eaten so much more of it. Thankfully I tried to save room for desert as the waffle was too tempting to turn down. Though I felt so full at the end of it I practically rolled out of the place. I'm definitely going back next time i'm here.

Reviewed By Carlshirley - Northampton, United Kingdom

Life is always good when you have a Pasty in your hand. Today it was a Philps Pasty.
The Flakey ones were just out of the oven so we went for them.
In my own opinion, not a winner. I’d rather the normal ones. But we’re all different and so be it.
