Ok i'm prejudiced, I admit it - I've loved RHB since my first trip at the age of 5 and been back many, many times since. The light on the beach in foul or fair weather is seldom the same twice and mornings and evening s can be especially magical as the tide reveals and conceals the treasure of the many rockpools.
The bay hotel pub itself is the very best kind of seaside pub. An honest pleasant unfussy welcome a small range of really well kept beer and decent grub at a reasonable price.
Food service is brisk and the meals hearty, filling affairs with predominantly local ingredients. Just what you need after a day on the beach.
The rooms are small, spotless and gifted with views that stay with you for ever. (Grab room number one if you can for the most stunning of the views but be aware you may have to book a l o n g way ahead to get it!).
One thing you might like to bare in mind is this. The Bay is smashing in Summer and stunning in Winter. Go out of season, take your warm coats and hats and enjoy the splendour of the place and the pub without a million other visitors jostling around. You've more chance of a room at this time of year and the chance to work (almost) alone on one of the finest beaches in England.
