Spent a three day break here at the end of November. Couldn't have been any better. Fantastic setting, great location, very welcoming & attentive staff, good quality food and Timothy Taylor's Landlord Bitter on draught! We will definitely be returning.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions over the years but this was the first under the new management. The landlord seems to be overcompensating for some of the negative comments and his constant attention started to annoy a little. That said the staff were attentive and friendly. My mussels were well presented, plentious and reasonably priced, two... More

dropped in for tea and scones as we passed through - hosts were very welcoming and the food and atmosphere excellent. reading other reviews not everyone seems to agree - have to wonder whether its a bit of local sour grapes about a change in management as it seemed very good to us - nb, we did not stay in...

Having stayed here during the summer, we were easily tempted to return for the beachside bonfire event for a couple of nights. The experience was absolutely fantastic, with tourists and locals alike coming from far and wide to enjoy the celebrations, atmosphere, and the sensational food. I was shocked to read a recent derogatory and apalling review from someone who... More

This hotel had a half page advert in the local newspaper giving the date for the Bonfire night fireworks party on November 8th. On telephoning to ask the timings I was told by a laughing woman that it was last week. No explanation, no apology, just a comment that it was lucky that they hadn't put a time in the... More

Have just returned from 3 days at Port Gaverne Hotel. We have been visiting the hotel for 28 years but will think very hard about returning. The rooms as ever were delightful, but the new management leave a lot to be desired. The restaurant and bar menu was the same and did not change in the time we were there,... More

The staff are pleasant. We had comfortable enough twin beds. The bathroom was adequate with a bath which had a shower system attached to the bath tap. No grip handles for the more mature of us. The restaurant had staff still under training, but nice enough. The dinners were very good. My wife had the lobster thermadore(£32) and I had... More

We recently moved to the area and decided to eat at the pub for the first time on their bonfire night celebrations. Luckily we got there early enough to get a table. Although they didnt serve food until 6. We asked to browse a menu in the meantime but they hadn't printed them out yet! How bizarre! I ordered a... More

I night had fish and chips, 1 night a hamburger, and the last night Haddock, which ALL were outstanding! Really great ambience (We ate at an outside table), really good... More
