|Aug 11 - popped in for lunch and didn't expect such a good experience for a pub so close to the beach (compared to the many bland touristy ripoffs on coast we walked in & straight out of that week). Our party of 4 had just sat down in pole position in the front bar when the skies opened up and people flocked in - hoards of them - with kids in prams, soggy dogs etc, the place swallowed them all over its three floors with no fuss. We ordered food - expecting a long wait (and I resigned myself to trying most of the excellent range of beers before being served) - but no - all 4 dishes arrived within 20 minutes, local fish & moules, though portions were a bit on the small size - it was all very tasty. Note, in summer you can get ticket for free parking opp pub, so ask at bar before coughing up £££s for pay& display.|

|Visited this pub 3rd week in july 2011about 1pm. Im a real ale follower and this one is a muster!|
8 handpumps 2 of their own brews, one skinners, tribute plus 4 microbreweries beers. Nice old fashion pub surroundings in the pub area all you could want. Had a snack, all well presented and tasty but pricey, but if you want cheap go to one of the cheap chain pubsand drink trash beer! Class place. We are booking to stop there next year on the strength of our visit. Cant comment on the restraunt but it looks a bit modern, cafe culture style.

|We haven't stayed at the Driftwood Spars, but visited it twice to sample its food and beers. For our April 2011 visit we booked in person a table for 3 on the balcony over the upstairs bar. On the night we arrived and a large party had been seated where we had booked, and we had been placed down by the bar (so the party members had to push past to order their drinks. No explanation or apology was given. We had to wait for the party to be served before our order was taken, and the resulting wait meant we only ate a main course. The food was lovely and so were the ales, so we returned in a party of 5 for the Sausage and Ale Festival in May 2011. The sausage meals had to be ordered from the downstairs bar, but at least they had a veggie sausage option. When the food arrived there was no veggie meal at all, and when we asked the waitress retorted that we would have to go and re-order from the downstairs bar. We refused and she reluctantly disappeared to return later with the veggie meal - which then had to be eaten after the other group members had finished theirs. We shall not return.|
So, food and ales excellent, customer service, waitressing and overall customer care Very Poor for such a high-rated establishment.
