We have lived in the area for a few years. We avoided eating here after a few pretty awful meals but have recently returned as it is now under new ownership. If you want freshly bought and freshly cooked food, done very well, then you can't really do better than this. The place had been pretty unloved for years and... More

We had a very nice stay at this pub. Friendly staff and very nice bedroom. We were told by the member of staff that carpets etc would be replaced in the not too distant future. Meals were lovely and breakfast was all you would really ask for. Not too sure about the dog but another guest called him away from... More

We have eaten here regularly since arriving in the area early last year and believed we had found a gem! Good food cooked well and an extensive menu. Then a few weeks ago all changed .... New owner, Limited menu and poor quality bistro style food .... Not impressed. Also, I have to mention the removal of hand dryers and... More

All was fabulous..... Food: good traditional pub grub with lots of choice, good sized portions and good value, then in comes a new landlord (a chef) and that which was clearly working is thrown away. Now a very limited choice and smaller portions. We're fairly new to the area and had begun eating here several nights a week - alas... More

We were fortunate to visit an old "local haunt" on a recent holiday. The food has very much improved and is definitely extremely good value for money. Staff were wonderful and extremely accommodating. The biggest "bug bear" we had with visiting the venue was the fact that there were so many dogs in the restaurant - what on earth are... More

We have never bothered to eat at the Coombe before as the food has always looked sad and underwhelming but with the arrival of new management we thought we would give it a go and wow are we glad! Amazing food, huge portions of beautiful pulled lamb, crispy roast potatoes, firm carrots, thin gravy that had never seen a stock... More

Perfect for those who like their hot food served cold. Recently been taken over by new management, menu consisted of 1 starter and 7 mains (despite menu online showing a huge range of dishes) so immediately we were disappointed. I ordered the lamb, which turned up stone cold and was served as a mushy lump of shredded meat. Awful. Mash... More

Marvelous view from room six. This hotel has a great position and when the new owners can redecorate it'll a ferfic place to stay. We stayed for two nights, the recption wzs good, food good although a small menue at the moment very well cooked and presented. The breakfast was first class.we will return.

Right by the beach with own car park, only other parking seemed to be car park which charges £5 per day and I imagine must get full on busy days, the hotel parking was free if you stay there. Large outside area with tables overlooking the beach. This hotel and is very dated on the ground floor, the bedroom I... More
