    Disappointed with range on offer, no vegan options. However was able to order chips and vegetables. Unfortunately the vegetables were still frozen but the fries were lovely. My drink had dead flies in but the staff promptly replaced it. My partners steak was nice but the peppercorn sauce was watery and chips still frozen. Not worth the price paid unfortunately.

    The service was super, the young ladies working here are so polite, friendly and quick. The food however, was dire. The caeser salad used precooked chicken that was a strange shade of brown, and very rubbery. Almost like pork. The toasted sandwich was barely toasted, thrown together and just bleh. Far too expensive for bad food. Didn't complain on site as the servers were just too nice, no need to ruin their day!

    Truly dreadful. Received a call less than two hours from booking telling us they were cancelling our reservation. Told them when booking this was a special occasion. No excuses are good enough, if the owner had to prepare the food himself, that's what any decent establishment should have done. Absolutely precious family event spoiled. Ended up eating in a pub. Don't trust these people with your occasion.

    If you are looking to have Afternoon tea , you must book your reservation through the Reception desk NOT through Open table! OPEN TABLE bookings are for bar food. You also need to give your car Registration number to the Reception desk on arrival before dinning. This is to avail of FREE parking available.

    Nice food but mediocre portions. Main courses not available at 14:00 for lunch? Items meant to be included, not offered! (Mince Pie with coffee course). The table service was poor. Dishes from the previous course still on the table when the next course arrived. In my opinion, not worth the €25 charge for an average lunch menu.

    The service was not great, we were waiting 1.5 hours for our main course to arrive and with two kids with us this is not really ideal. Also we had to ask for the bill more than twice.

    Booked for family night to celebrate a big birthday. Booked seaview room, didn’t get one! Reception was very helpful. Waiting staff were very understaffed so the wait for food or drink was long!! 30 mins for a drinks order!! Sides were forgotten. Bill requested and never arrived. Overhead staff give out that we’d “walked without paying” despite us telling 4 different staff members we were dinner bed breakfast so food was included. Despite me checking with 2 more waiting staff that we’d been given the right menu for our package, we had the wrong menu which led to the lady huffing and puffing at me about it. Staff were mostly very young and inexperienced which was very obvious

    Food came out very quickly, no complaint there. However, our empty plates were not collected and after approximately half an hour of waiting for them to be collected, we decided to leave. We were prepared to have a few more drinks, and a dessert each but as no one seemed overly interested in clearing the table and asking if we were ok, we got up and paid our bill. Shame, as you could have got more money from us if you had asked. Will not rush back…

    Location speaks for itself. Shoreline has improved a lot, however food is a bit overpriced for what's on offer. Food sounds much better on the menu than it is in reality. Bit disappointing, the food used to be much better. Still would recommend the Shoreline for it's location, friendly service and ambience.

    Terrible service was left waiting to be seated and then once seated no one took our order so we left after 30 minutes. Complained to the hotel manager but I doubt it will have any effect. Last time we ever go here thats for sure.

    When we arrived, and although I had booked via the Open Table App, our booking was not in the Shoreline system. By all accounts, this happens quite often. Fortunately, we were found a table quickly but we would have been disappointed if if we could not have been accommodated.

    The tables were filthy, with old food left on them. We asked staff to wipe down our table and this was not done. The whole area was dirty, and crawling with ants. We both had chicken curry. The food was bad, acidic, and tasted like something out of a jar from the supermarket. The portions were also small, with hardly any chicken and veg. So it was basically sauce and rice with naan bread. We queued up at a window to pay for the food in advance, which was then delivered to the table. All of that unpleasant dining experience then cost us €39 euro for two chicken curries and two glasses of water.

    Lovely venue - nice dining experience but it was a bit annoying having to get in a que for the window service to get a second drink after having received our food . Even to get a tartare sauce we were told we had to que again to order this which was a bit unreasonable. The que was quite long so our meal would have gone cold by the time we got the tartare sauce . Other restaurants do table service so I think this service should be at the Shoreline Hotel also. Staff very nice and friendly - but on busy days the window service doesn’t work.

    We were sat in the shade despite the sun shining, drinks left to go warm before being served to us, requested a starter as a main and was told this wasn’t possible. Young female staff are lovely. But over all it was overpriced for what we received and we went home and had to make more food.
