We visited one lunchtime during our holiday. This unspoilt traditional pub offered a large menu and our expectations were not too high. Two of us had salmon and cheese fish cakes and the other fish and chips. All were excellent and the fishcakes unusual and served with delicious new potatoes.

Lunch was dreadful. "Locally made" vegetable pasty contained nothing more than a grey sludge of potato(?) and cheese encased in hard, inedible pastry. Chips DIDN'T accompany it, despite being promised by the menu. Garnish was some bits of lettuce that had seen better days (several better days). We also ordered a ham and mustard sandwich that was made with fluffy... More

We visited on a foul wet and windynight so couldn't sit outside. There are no sea views from inside which is a pity - you could have been anywhere. The food is basic pub grub so if you aren't expecting too much its fine - but gastro pub it is not, though to be fair it doesn't claimto be anything... More

I rode 267 miles on my motorcycle to meet up with three biker friends at Hartland Quay Hotel and have to say that location is key. This hotel was not the easiest place to find. You have to believe in your sense of direction and keep pushing on down single track lanes towards what seems a definite wet end. When... More

Visited the Hartland Quay Hotel whilst doing a spot of coastline walking and sight seeing. This pub does basic homely style food. The food portions were of a very good size which left you feeling that you had eaten. I have read some of the other reviews here that moan about the poor quality food. I found the food was... More

Maria and I sort of fell upon this place after a visit to the Hartland Point lighthouse. The hotel is set in an evocative bay with Jurassic black rock formations on the beach ideal for rock pooling. There is lots of outdoor seating and a lot of people were eating out here seemingly enjoying their food looking at the stunning... More

Fantastic stay for one night. Friendly welcome. Lovely room overlooking the Atlantic. Room was large with great bathroom. Binoculars were a thoughtful addition in the well furnished room. Room was very comfortable with great bed for sleeping after a long day.

We waited ages for a pasty and bowl of soup. The 'award winning' pasty was a soggy, floppy & microwaved, which made it so greasy. I took one bite, as did my partner but neither of us could eat it. The veg soup tasted unseasoned and the bread roll was hard. The eating area had pictures of Manchester United players... More
