We went here for lunch two days on a trot. I had different soup on both days which was good. On the first day my husbands sandwich was a bit dry but on the second day he had welsh rarebit which he said was lovely....More

My wife and I had an all-day vege breakfast - after lunch! Reasonably quick service, friendly staff and most importantly a tasty meal.

Visited twice this holiday.. Both times we was welcomed by friendly staff. Had some great banter with them. The chap on for breakfast on the 11/6/18 was a good laugh, esp with my well done bacon.. 😂😂 Food and drinks was great, reasonably priced too....More

Had lunch here whilst on a trip to New Quay for the day. Very nice, friendly and helpful waiter. A menu with something for everyone. It wasn't overly busy but I can imagine it feeling a little cramped if all the tables were taken inside....More

We went for lunch and had the seafood hotpot and sea bass. Both meals were good. The weather was baking hot so we sat inside in the cool. Saw Dolphins in the bay too. Service was good and unhurried.

sub-standard prawns - some were minute and some mussel shells empty. The 'prawns' were quite greasy.

A great place to grab a drink late afternoon, the best views of the harbour. Friendly staff and reasonably priced drinks.
