Reviewed 13 May 2012

On arrival it looked a beautiful location looking over the sea. We were happy to be pending a couple of hours here. Afternoon menu was only option as arrived after 3pm so a different range of burgers all round. Our daughters meal was not brought out and when we asked, we were told we had not ordered it. Waitress was very rude and unhelpful. The food that was delivered was lovely and worth the money!

Stayed: May 2012, travelled with family

We were staying a couple of minutes walk from the pub and ate here 3 evenings. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and lovely food. We enjoyed all our meals each night and could not fault them at all.

Didn't give a good rating for stay as this is based on their own apartments which we weren't staying in so cannot comment!

I wanted to treat my long-suffering missus to a special lunch the other day...I made my plan, rang the Oystercatcher a couple of days in advance and arranged with our delightful hostess Flora, for a local lobster to be prepared for my wife...and a humble 'all-day breakfast' for myself (not keen on seafood). This was all discreetly arranged and proved to be a wonderful surprise for my wife...the food was excellent quality and deliciously prepared, and, though not standard menu items...we were most impressed that the Management and kitchen crew willingly 'went the extra mile' to make our small celebration most memorable!

The beer is excellent too!

We will definitely return to Flora's 'Oystercatcher a-Go-Go'!!!

Room Tip: Only stayed for lunch, which was brilliant...will try rooms on another occasion.

Didn't stay here, but the burgers are great and outdoor decked seating has beautiful views. Also, service is good.

We are a group of girls who arranged a 'girly weekend' with the help of Flora (the amazing and talented 'bossette' of the Oystercatcher). As well as providing top accommodation with amazing views over Polzy beach, and hot & cold running buff surfers in skimpy wet-suits at all hours, we were entertained to cocktails at the Waterman's Bar, an exciting water taxi across to Padstow where a fantastic italian supper was laid on for us at a lovely intimate Italian bistro, just back off the quayside. All this was organised by our wonderful hostess Flo, who must know everyone who's Anybody in Polzeath, Rock and Padstow! A thousand thankyous Flo, and also to your cracking cast of backroom crew and contacts in other establishments! We'll definitely be back (even if it's just to pick up Suzy's underwear!), and will give you a hearty 5 star recommendation to one and all! Top pub and a top weekend!

Room Tip: ask for beach view

Visited for lunch today (Apr 13th) and ordered the 'specials'. Chorizo Burger was burnt on the outside and almost raw on the inside! My wife's scallops were very ordinary with a poor sauce. These dishes took almost 35 mins to appear to make matters worse and we were 'served' by someone with no interest . A pity because there is almost no competition in Polzeath.

We had a lovely room with fantastic view of the bay. The only minus point was the awful shower. The water just trickled out!
