Went to eat at the harbor but the fish restaurant was closed so tried the Mayview. Good two course lunch, freshly cooked and flavorsome. Very friendly staff and reasonably priced. Would recommend and will return.

Went for supper in the buzzy bar. Good selection of dishes using local produce. The plates looked delicious but all lacked flavour. The veggies were fresh and well cooked but didn't taste of much. Ditto the sole mornay which didn't taste of cheese! Think the chef needs to taste his dishes to check the seasoning before he serves them.

The Mayview is a good value boozer with food and rooms. The bar is warm and welcoming with a super beer garden out back. Food is served in the lounge or the hotel's own dining room (which is swisher than you might expect) and is always good. The chef has a light touch around a crustacean - his lobster was... More

Great family pub and restaurant. Good choice of well priced, expertly prepared and locally sourced food, friendly and professional staff who made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended. Nice big beer garden at the back.

Eaten here twice in the last few days and the food is just wonderful; hard to take recent negative comments seriously, and I just wonder just where they thought they were? The bar area is also not what you might think from the outside of the hotel; it's a really nice bar, a normal every day pub atmosphere. Service on... More

Having eaten at many supposed gastro pubs and seafood speciality restaurants in England and Scotland I have to say that our meal for 4 at the Mayview on 10/8/14 was fantastic. Service was super. Staff were friendly and efficient. The food was superb. I suppose you cannot please everyone all the time but those posting such desperate negative comments need... More

I cannot understand previous negative comments about the food here. We stayed overnight whilst walking the coastal path. Staff were incredibly helpful and it was a good room and very comfortable. We ate in and had a lovely meal - would definitely visit again.

I find it hard that a chef can produce Scotch Broth that's tasteless and requires copious quantities of salt and pepper and follow the act with the taste stripped from smoked haddock (the poached egg on top was appropriately hard). My daughters cheese burger had been obliterated in the microwave (I've hopefully loaded a photo of that). Service was great!(on... More

Difficult to take seriously the negative review posted by Lee F! We have frequently eaten at the Mayview, our local, and always found the food and service excellent. Our friends have stayed there and our son and his wife had their wedding reception in the function room. All of the guests were most complimentary and every other function I have... More

I attended with my girlfriend in April for a few drinks on a Friday. The staff were very friendly and the beer was well priced, this was well priced. What more would you like in a nice little coastal town :)
