A half-hour escape from Colchester, the Ocean Hotel occupies a prime location on Clacton-on-Sea’s seafront, next to Victoria Pier.
Boasting unbeatable views of the North Sea and thoroughly modern furnishings, a stay in this four-star establishment is every bit as uplifting as its name would suggest.
To the right of the main lobby sits the Ocean Bar, a lively yet laid-back spot to relax and enjoy some prime quality British and Internationally inspired cuisine. The Ocean Bar has a spectacular sun terrace stretching out along its front, which cries out to be lazed on come the summer months.
Diners can keep with the nautical theme of the Ocean Bar by enjoying a plate of fish and chips, or succumb to their meat cravings and tuck into a burger, a full rack of bourbon glazed ribs, or crispy tempura chicken, coated in the finest herb, chilli and garlic batter.
There are also light bites and nibbles aplenty, ranging from healthy salads, sandwiches and omelettes to Mediterranean olives, pizza flatbread and grazing boards. Partner the locally-sourced food offering with exceptionally cheerful customer service and of course, your tastecard discount, and you have a winning beachside dining experience.
Protected by a stringent door policy, the Ocean Bar is the perfect spot to relax on an evening without the rowdiness you’d come across in Clacton-on-Sea’s other bars. That’s excluding Friday nights, when a live band plays from after-tea until late; or on match days, when the sport is broadcast on the bar’s large screens. There's free wifi throughout, and kids are welcome.
Please Note: This tastecard discount is not available throughout the month of December.
