Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful! Found this little place on a drive out to West Bay and so glad we did, the service couldn’t have been better and the food absolutely delicious! My husband had the fish gratin that was on the specials board and I had a beef...casserole, meat tender and delicious. Would recommend to all couples wanting excellent quality meals in a comfortable and welcoming setting. Well done Seagulls !!More

Highly recommended Food and service were really good. Prices are reasonable and good value. We’ve visited this place before and it’s consistently good. You won’t be disappointed.

We went here for lunch with friends on a Sunday in March, during a recent week's stay at West Bay. Food and service were excellent, waitress very friendly and efficient. We all enjoyed our main course choices, but all had the delicious bread and butter...pudding for afters. We went back later during our stay for an evening meal, which again was very enjoyable. We would recommend this restaurant.More

Lovely friendly waitress who made you feel welcome as soon as you walked into the establishment. The plaice which we both had was absolutely lovely, the puddings all homemade which really makes a difference. Would highly recommend.

Excellent food at realistic prices, fabulous Sunday lunch, friendly staff. Very limited parking so have to pay for car park but well worth it for good food very reasonably priced. Will be back next year.

Early evening meal here whilst staying in West Bay. Fairly busy at 6.30/7 and only one waitress, Maisie, due to staff sickness. Maisie was a real star, unflappable and still had time to chat and check up on each table. No delay with our orders...from the Specials board of crab soup and fried squid to start, then hake and plaice, both beautifully cooked. Decent bottle of Pinot Grigio. Lemon posset and ice cream to finish. Would definitely revisit if in the area.More

Excellent food and service. We couldn’t have had a better evening. The waitress was so obliging and couldn’t have done more for us. Would definitely go back again.

We were visiting an elderly relative who lives locally. She booked a table for a Thursday night at 6.00pm. The restaurant was surprisingly busy considering how early it was. Staff all seemed very pleasant and helpful. The menu is not huge, but there's a range...of dishes to suit most tastes. Fish features heavily as you would expect. We had 2 lamb shanks, and a steak. All were nicely presented, and delicious. Vegetables were fresh, and well cooked. We had 2 fudge cakes for dessert. The lady who took us couldn't manage one! These were lovely too, and came with pouring cream. A very pleasant experience overall and a nice atmosphere. My advice would be to book in advance, particularly during peak season and at weekends.More

Seagulls in West Bay is a real find. We’ve been staying in the area for a week and have eaten there three times. The food is outstanding and the service perfect - courteous, helpful, friendly and polite, Seagulls is not a huge restaurant and last...night was very busy - 22 covers. We were given a warm welcome, and were shown to our table by the very nice young lady who had be waiting on tables during each of our visits. She apologised that she was on her own but that she’d try not to keep us waiting too long. She did a great job making sure that everyone got what they wanted - she was the consummate processional,. We probably had to wait about five minutes longer than usual so no big deal. The food was outstanding and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Thanks Seagulls for making our holiday so special - we’re already looking forward to coming back to you next year.More

Called in person 2 days before my requested booking & my request...had not been noted, girl I spoke to most unapologetic.More

As a Michelin star chef myself, I was disappointed when the chef said he hadn’t got time to take my plaice off the bone! If he worked in my restaurant, I would have dismissed him immediately!
