We both had the roast for lunch, shared a sticky toffee pudding. Wonderful food and at £10 for a roast, great value. Wine was also excellent and very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly from beginning to end. Shame to leave and go back out into the rain!

We called in for a lunch purely by chance, and we were certainly not disappointed. The service, the food, and the dining area were all top class. We hope to frequent this top venue on a regular basis in the future.

Spent a weekend at the West Bay with two other couples recently. Ate in both nights, selecting mains, and some starters, from the daily fish board. The food was really excellent, and all the staff were friendly and very efficient. Breakfast was also really good. The disappointment lay in the bedrooms. Really spacious, large bed, but "rough round the edges".... 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
