The food definitely met expectations but I am quite disturbed by one of the managers on duty who said things that were rather inappropriate. They were also terribly short-handed so we tend to need to wait a long time before someone attends to us, not forgetting the c***-ups here and there like, giving us the wrong menus, failing to clear our tables before the next course arrives etc.
We came here for the lobster, and ordered the Pier's Lobster Roll ($32) and the Pier Lobster Cobb ($32).
Pier Lobster Cobb ($32) -- this was more of a light summer salad with half a butter poached Maine lobster, chopped eggs, sweet corn, with rich avocado and crisp bacon, doused in a smokey tomato vinaigrette dressing.
The Pier Lobster Roll ($32) - butter poached half lobster, light mayo & chives in a brioche bun with truffle fries. The brioche was lightly toasted and was the perfect blank canvas for the lobster. The portion of truffle fries is gigantic - more than sufficient for two (we had leftovers).

There’re 2 venues for afternoon tea within The Fullerton Bay Hotel. One can choose between The Landing Point or The Clifford Pier. But obviously, I did not realise that till I called. I mean, one would normally assume there’s only one venue within a hotel. No? When I called to make my reservation for high tea, I was informed by the lady on the other end that they were fully booked for high tea. She went on to suggest afternoon tea at The Clifford Pier. That of course got me a little confused since I was still not aware they had 2 venues for afternoon tea, but I just went ahead with the reservation. Ha.
And luck was on my side cause personally, I preferred The Clifford Pier over The Landing Point for its ambience. The Clifford Pier was elegantly designed, all while preserving the original architecture of the 1930s jetty. My friend and I could imagine where the ticket counters and waiting area used to be.
And besides the ambience, the other difference between the 2 venues would be the food. Taking from their official website, The Clifford Pier’s afternoon tea menu offers Singapore dishes with distinctively local flavours, and are specially curated by acclaimed Singaporean cookbook author Shermay Lee. A selection of 8 savoury and 8 sweet items to reflect Singapore’s culinary past and present. As such, there’s only 1 menu (pages 1, 2) at The Clifford Pier. As my friend and I came on a long weekend, the menu was priced at $59 (adult). If not, it’s usually priced at $38 (adult). And with that, we started our afternoon tea:-
1) 3-tiers tea set comprising of:-
(A) 1st tier (sweets) – Pineapple-vanilla thumbprint cookie, roselle jam linzer cookie, hainanese kaya bun, pandan swiss roll, sugee financier, bandung macaroon. Our favourite were pandan swiss roll and pineapple-vanilla thumbprint cookie
(B) 2nd tier (savouries) – Kueh pie tee, mini popiah wrapped in handmade nonya egg skin, nonya chicken curry in roti jala wrap, bak kwa jam sandwich, hae bee hiam french toast, otak sandwich. Chilli sauce for the 2nd tier was provided separately.
(C) Top tier (sweets) – Plain scone, tropical fruit scone. Spreads like butter, clotted cream, berries jam, kaya, and pineapple-vanilla jam were also provided.

So yes, I will definitely recommend The Clifford Pier. It’s a refreshing change to have a Singapore Heritage Afternoon Tea where food were spun off familiar Singapore dishes. And these were very reasonably priced at $38 (on normal weekends). But make sure to come with a very empty stomach though. We couldn’t finish what’s on our 3-tiers tea set.
And my strong recommendation of The Clifford Pier stemmed from the ambience, which I loved the most. Do come at 3.30pm sharp as the afternoon tea is only 2 hours long from 3.30 to 5.30pm!
