Centre Stage

Image Description

Formally known as The Amsterdam, this gorgeous seafront venue is now under new ownership and has undergone a bit of a revamp over the past few weeks. The outside seating area now allows a sense of privacy following the installation of imitation hedges that give a classy, high-end feel to the exterior. One word to describe the interior, camp, but delightfully so. The addition of a sequin backdrop to the stage and some colourful murals on the walls works well, you definitely know you’re in an LGBTQ+ cabaret space. But what’s the new menu like? I ordered a chicken, bacon and blue cheese ciabatta with a side of chicken wings. My dining partner ordered the pizza with a side of ribs. My verdict is that it’s really good pub grub. The toppings weren’t skimpy on the pizza and it was all well presented and delicious. The staff and owners were magnanimous but not overbearing and checked in at the right moments for drink top-ups and ensured we were happy with the food. I’ll 100% be going back for more food or to watch the endless stream of drag artists and shows over the following weeks.
