Customer Reviews


"Parked our scooter right outside the entrance, door was opened by the front of house. The chap was very pleasant and sat us on the bar stools where we ordered coffees while our table was prepared. We were a table of six with two small children for a birthday brunch. My daughter and I had a glass of bubbly which came with a strawberry in the glass. I would highly recommend the bubble and squeak, ham and eggs, delicious. The waiting staff were very attentive and accommodating of the little ones. Food came quickly, was piping hot and cooked perfectly. After passing this restaurant for years, so pleased we tried it and will be returning."


"Absolutely loved this place! We were driving past and spotted this little row of eateries and The Estuary drew us in with us modern decor and fab outdoor seating area. All dog friendly too which we needed. The food is amazing! We had scallops and prawns skewers, with loads of sides to choose from, so tasty! Loved the location and the staff were lovely too! Would deffo return if in the area"


"A great place to get lunch, very good prices and very filling. The portions are very generous which was great to see. The calamari is really good, I’d recommend. No need to book, you can walk in and choose a place to sit. The employees were super friendly and very helpful. Very clean too with a view of the sea."


"We foolishly didn't book for our brunch today (Sunday) and turned up to find the place bursting at the seams as it often is on the weekends! We were politely offered a table outside under the heaters to have a hot drink while we waited our turn for a table inside. Our drinks order was taken and hot drinks arrived in good time, and the coffees were good.
It didn't take too long to get a table inside even though its was 'one in one out' - this we come quite often but its obviously a regular place for many punters.
We had a range of breakfasts from the menu, and everyone went home happy and full! The Estuary is definitely the best of the 'Arches' restaurants."
