Apparently this place is MASSIVE. Umm, not sure I'd call it that. Big yes. Everyone else ate here but not me, I just had crisps.

Early afternoon on a January weekday, most of the tables were occupied which makes me think this seafront pub will do very well in the summer months. The majority of the more interesting beers were in the upstairs bar, I have made no attempt to list them.

Early evening visit. Beautifully restored building but with no soul. I was quick to sup and leave after I had walked around to discover the layout. Bit much having 9 of the 18 handpumps selling Ruddles, Abbot and Doomeroo.

Its huge. Its great. It has more staff than i have ever seen in a Wetherspoons. They patrol their areas ready to spring on the mere hint of an empty plate. Impressive

Afternoon visit on a very cold day with the occasional light snow flurry so we did not expect this place to be busy, in fact it was doing quite well although I think absolutely no-one was using the outside seating areas. The food trade appeared to be doing quite well. I have not listed all the beers that were available but the usual suspects were there together with some guests and the Christmas Ales were starting to make an appearance.

Elgood's - North Brink Porter5.00ExcellentSuperb dark and creamy porter.

This building opened as a Wetherspoon's on Tuesday 29 August 2017 and is probably the largest Wetherspoon's in the country.

On two levels with a bar with 12 handpumps at ground level and another on the 1st floor balcony with 6 handpumps. Open-to-view kitchen on the ground floor. There is a ground floor rear patio and an upstairs outside covered decking area for fair weather drinking and sea and sand views.

We have visited this pub 25 times, seen 56 different beers and tried 33 of them.
