Easily the best place in town, its where all the locals go! All of the staff are super friendly and caring. The landlord and lady are a lovely couple and really care about the quality of their food and the service given. My partner and I come here all the time and are never disappointed. I have never known a... More

This is the 3rd time in the last couple of months we have had lunch here and it has been superb. The staff are excellent and always give you a warm welcome. The food is brilliant and excellent value. 2 courses and you are full. My wife loves the puddings which are home made. Toffee apple cheesecake, wow. They also... More

We've been coming here for quite a few years now when on holiday in the area. The quality of the food has remained excellent and it's great to find a dog friendly restaurant - though for those without dogs there are plenty of tables where dogs aren't allowed. Excellent fish menu complimented by friendly service in a beautiful part of... More

Had lunch here in a large group. Have to say we were all catered for very well. The bouillabaisse that I had was great. The service was fine

Good selection of Good Pub food, Service is good, in the centre of town, near the harbour but not much of a view.

The food is clearly the passion here but for £110 a night for accommodation I expected more for my money than tatty carpets, damp stained ceilings and gnawed skirting boards. The en-suite is new and clean. The bathroom window blinds were tatty and the window propped up by a piece of wood. The bed was clean and comfy. If the... More

My partner and I had lunch in this pub last week and found it to be slightly disappointing. My partner had ham, egg and chips, which reminded him of eating out in the 70s, and I had belly pork - I have eaten better. The desserts were ok, but it was all very ordinary, nothing special.

We have had wonderful meals with welcoming service at 'The West Bay Hotel'. It's a very well presented establishment. The restaurant is nicely placed at the rear of the pub. There are two beer gardens for the better weather. The staff here really know how to make customers welcome. Thank you, we will recommend !
