We booked The Rattler for my neice's 19th birthday lunch. The attention to detail, prior to the day was superb. For a small cost, the restaurant organised table decorations and we were seated in the conservatory - a spectacular view. The service was top drawer. Attentive and professional, perfectly balanced. Quality champagne for the adults and beautifully created 'mocktails' for the children. Pizzas were great. I'd return again for the service, location and pizza!
Under staffed,had to wait a while for staff to bring over our food even though it was waiting there to be served. Had to go to thr bar through our meal as no one ask if we would like another drink . Poor service though out.
Disappointed this time...the food was cold. Staff friendly though and dealt with our complaint well and without any issues. Great location on the beach front.
