Contemporary British
With a Scandinavian/New England feel, the Gallivant is a calm, informal and relaxing place to dine. Our small team is dedicated to serving delicious food foraged and sourced locally with some 95% of fresh ingredients coming from the fishermen and farmers who live and work within 10 miles of us. The menu changes often with a daily special lunch menu as well as à la carte, vegetarian and gourmet menus on offer.

The wine list is abundant and includes a selection of sensibly priced local English cuvées, international red and whites as well as pudding and cheese pairings.

Located just across the road from the dunes and beautiful miles of sandy beach beyond, in winter months enjoy the warmth of a roaring fire by the bar and when the weather's fine nab a table on the outdoor terrace.

    We visited The Gallivant on a Tuesday night .. we thought it might be a bit quiet and lack ambience ... we were wrong, probably due to the hotel part of the business, the place was nice and busy. The staff were very friendly and the food was really good. All local produce being a proud boast of the restaurant as well. Will definitely go back.

    Very pleasantly surprised by menu, food and great wine list. Felt a little rushed with next course coming as soon as last course plates removed but overall very good indeed.

    Very nice restaurant with a nice atmosphere and of the level you would expect to see in high class London restaurants, completely different and far superior to other nearby pub restaurants. Although we only had Sunday Lunch, I would expect dinner to be at the same level and would thoroughly recommend.
