The food at lily's by the sea is the best place for food and drink. The staff here are well mannered and very polite, the service provided here you get nowhere else in the area. Lily's by the sea is the best place to come to and I recommend everyone come here!

Went here recently with some friends. Lovely brie, cranberry and bacon sandwiches, good coffee, friendly staff. Would possibly go back... but a note to the noisy kitchen staff - try not to slag off the 'lazy' teaching profession at the top of your voice, you could end up offending some customers (like me), who may then be reluctant to return! keep your unwarranted opinions out of the work place please, it's unprofessional.

Tina and Lee closed the restaurant for us as it was a get together for the ladies who retired to meet up with their work colleagues. I spent a lovely couple of hours with them all, it was nice seeing. Tina and Lee laid on a special Christmas dinner for us, starters, main dinner, mulled wine and desert, tea or coffee, the price she gave us was not enough for such a wonderful spread.
The food was excellent and very good value for money.
We were made very welcome by everyone, atmosphere was relaxing, we didn't feel rushed and we were able to sit on comfortable chairs to chat, drink coffee or tea or even wine. There was a book shelf with a selection of books for customers.
The whole restaurant was very clean and tidy.
I will be going there again and I would recommend it to everyone. You really should go there.
