With wonderful views across Cardigan Bay, the Old Watch House has a warm, friendly atmosphere. The service was excellent and the menu made the mouth water. The food was wonderful, fresh and quality ingredients and cooked to order. For a holiday highlight it was a great experience. Seeing the dolphins in the bay added to the experience.

4 of us had a lovely lunch here today. Varied menu, excellent food, and good service. Dad said it was the best 'all day breakfast' he's ever had, and my rainbow trout was perfect!

We visited one rainy weekday lunchtime, and got the best seat in the house, at the huge window overlooking the beach and the sea.
