“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

I would like to start with how friendly and welcoming the staff are, Especially the landlady and the blonde haired woman, i was absolutely amazed at how they seated me without a fuss, and no complaints about booking in advance:) The staff were lovely, we had a lovely young girl take our order and bring us out our food, she was polite and very helpful, she knew how to have a good laugh aswell! (Me and my husband were debating about whether the taute was homemade) when she said she wasnt sure she chacked and came back and sided with my husband, it was homemade! Following that a polite young gentleman then took our drink orders and bought them over without a fuss. All i can say is i will be back soon! the food was amazing, the cleanliness was great and the prices were reasonible, Thankyou to all staff at quay inn!

Room Tip: Get a room looking out over the sea, absolutely beautiful view!

Can't speak highly enough. Warm welcome by Rachael the owner/landlady.We had three perfect rooms two with stunning sea views. When we enquired about breakfast we were asked what time would we like it. Food excellent at great value for money. Great live music which was a bonus.
Highly recommended. Can't wait for return.

The pub itself looks quite nice and the atmosphere is not too bad. There were no starters available which probably paints a picture of the type of place this is already. Not a major issue but a bit disappointing. I ordered the rabbit for my lunch which was fairly dry - although tasted better than it looked on the plate! The mash potato was definitely 'Smash' out of a packet and was just solid on the plate! Again, it tasted nicer than it actually looked. Everything was 'passable' and the staff were really helpful and friendly but such a shame that the food is so mediocre. Before leaving I went to the loo and there was not one single loo roll to be found in either loo or in the main bathroom - and not even anywhere to put a loo roll! We were the first table to be seated and eat so if this was empty at midday / 1pm, goodness knows what it is like later on in the day! A shame as has good potential with its location right on the seafront but certainly not 'up market' enough for me! Very basic.

We ate at the Quay Inn last night and, contrary to some other comments, found the staff very welcoming. The pub is also dog friendly which was great for us to be able to eat inside, as it was a little cool outside. We can't comment on the accommodation as we only ate here. My husband had the ham, egg and chips. The ham was very good, but the presentation and value could have been improved with the addition of a something like a grilled tomato, a few mushrooms or peas. The chips were served separately in a basket which left the main plate looking a little sparse. I had the sausage and mash, which was nice but the portion was very small and I felt it poor value at £9.95.

We visited The Quay Inn whilst staying at a lovely thatched cottage in Minehead.
I took my grandchildren (aged 6 and 8) and my stepdaughter (24).
The location is superb and the restaurant/ bar is tastefully decorated.
The staff were all extremely friendly, the menu varied, good value and the food arrived promptly!
The quality of food was good and just the right sized portions for all of us.
The red wine was good and they had an excellent choice to choose from.
All in all......a great place to eat with the family at reasonable prices!

We recently had a weekend in Minehead and visited the Quay Inn twice during that time. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The men in our party really enjoyed their time there due to the fact the Quay Inn serves real ale. Had an enjoyable meal on the Saturday night, a little expensive, but then again you do pay a little more at seaside towns. Will visit again when next in Minehead

This Inn serves real ale hand pulled well kept been twice n both times beer was lovely even on a week day! Best of all for us was the warm welcome extended to our little dog. We ate in their restaurant with our dog by our side no trouble there and the food was divine, obviously all made on the premises and not overpriced. REFRESHING!
