It’s a case of "Back to the Future" at this beautifully situated site on the front, which operated here under the Due South name from 2004-2011 before becoming Riddle & Finns on the Beach. Now owner Rob Shenton has decided to return to its former branding having moved Riddle & Finns on the Beach to a new location nearby.
Harden's survey result
It has a “lovely setting” on the front, but Rob Shenton’s well-known venue has yet to reestablish itself fully since he decided last year to restore its branding of ten years ago (and to move Riddle & Finns On the Beach – his operation here since 2011 – to a new site). On limited feedback, some locals do rave all-round: others say “it’s not what it used to be – the food’s nicely cooked, but not good value for money”.
It’s a case of ‘Back to the Future’ at this beautifully situated site on the front, which operated here under the Due South name from 2004-2011, before becoming Riddle & Finns on the Beach. In May 2021, owner Rob Shenton decided to return to its former branding, having moved Riddle & Finns on the Beach to a new location nearby. No reports of the new, er old, regime as yet.
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Due South Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Happy New Year! And oysters, Bloody Mary, and various delicious things with home made crumpets. "
"Really friendly, engaged staff and overall of really fun way to spend a leisurely lunchtime looking at the sea. There were 6 of us and the lobster crumpets were divine - although the mussels were apparently distinctly ropey. Great Bloody Marys. "
