Steve C left this review about Coast

Another name change means that the Sackville is now known as Coast that advertises itself as a bar and grill. Out the front are some picnic tables within a good sized paved beer garden with views of a lawn and the sea beyond.

The front automatic sliding door leads to the Sackville salon to the right and the bar to the left. Unfortunately the distinctive smell that all hairdressers have is present in the bar area which I found a bit off-putting. The small bar is stocked with standard draught and supports two hand pumps. One of these was unused leaving Harvey’s Best as the lone ale option. The rear wall is mirrored and Tung and Groove flooring stretches from a rear seating area through the bar to the front conservatory. The conservatory has a its own coffee serving area and seemed to be more for dining during my recent Friday afternoon visit.

A sign in the window states that the bar opens at 10:30 except for Mondays when it is shut all day. It closes at 22:00 Tuesday to Thursday, 22:30 Fridays and Saturdays and at 20:00 on Sundays.

I’m not really sure what this place is trying to be. Whatever it is I wasn’t very impressed and do not plan to return.

Previously known as the Mermaid Bar and Mistral Bar this place is now under the moniker Sackville, which is the name of the hotel and apartments that also occupy this large building. I swung by on Friday night at 21:45 and found an empty bar. I noticed in the door that the closing times are 22:00 so I decided to venture elsewhere.

Sorry the picture looks crooked, must have had one too many Guinnessesssss, HIC! I remember asking the bar man if the place was haunted, because there was a stain on the carpet that looked like a dog. Or maybe it was the Guinness again.
