The Esplanade

About

The lounge bar and heated patio provide unrivalled, panoramic views of the bay and is the ideal place to relax and lose yourself for a few hours.

The back bar has a cosy pub ambience for those who enjoy a pint and a bit of craic; with a large selection of quality beers and lagers on tap, along with a choice of cask conditioned real ales to try.

A new bistro style menu is available in the first floor restaurant, which again enjoys impressive views across the bay; or dining also available in the lounge and patio areas. The extensive menu certainly offers something for everyone, with the addition of daily specials making it even harder to choose.

Ask your server about our current speciality menus, e.g. traditional Sunday roast or meal deal for two. There’s always something to suit everyone.

After your meal, why not pay a visit to the off sales and choose from a huge array of wines and spirits from around the globe?. The Off Sales is an independent retailer and can source some of those hard to find, speciality bottles, ideal for gifts and special occasion purchases.
