“1st time and last.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We visited the Captains Cabin last night on the recommendation of friends. The food wasn't cheap and I would have expected better quality for the price. I think the fish swam past my fish chowder starter as there wasn't even one piece of fish in the bowl and my ribeye steak was bland as were the vegetables. Everything was dusted with paprika, why?
The decor was as bland as the steak and a plastic table cloth made it all seem more like a school canteen than a restaurant.

“What a shame”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Lyn and Richard have been here a few months now and their meals are at best just ok ,I expected a lot better having been a regular customer at the flute .
We have eaten here now 4 times recently in the evening and have also tried the Sunday roast which was as if it had been purchased at a supermarket and just presented ,the beef was so thin and bland it was just like the mass packaged sandwich beef pack ,the Yorkshire puddings small and like aunt Bessie's .
So sorry folks please up your game otherwise it will not work out well.

“Good food, great views.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

My partner and I have called in for a drink several times recently and like sitting outside in the sun looking out over the bay. Although the old building is a bit tired the new owners have freshened the place up. We also recently booked an evening meal here with friends and had a table by the window. We had eaten at the owners previous restaurant (Flute de Paris) so had high hopes here and were not disappointed. We all had starters and main courses, the portions were ample with plenty of accompanying vegetables. Although this is a pub the food is a cut above normal pub food and we would like to eat here again.

“Fantastic dog friendly pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

We went to the Captains Cabin on a Sunday night for food, but unfortunately they had stopped serving food, so we stayed for drinks. The pub is fantastic with a warm friendly atmostphere, the staff could not have been more welcoming or friendly. It is also dog friendly, which was great, again the staff couldn't do enough for the dog, I think he got treated better at the Captains Cabin than we did at other restaurants we visited in Weston! This is a fantastic 'proper' pub that is well worth a try!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Went to eat here for my birthday. The staff were all very friendly there was a lovely atmosphere and we had a table right by the window. The menu offered alot of choice. When the food arrived it was very well presented and it tasted fantastic. Would definitely recommend eating here and I am looking forward to the next visit.
