Slow service. Apology for 50 minute wait between starter finishing and main. Chef had dropped order chit. Main course for 2 was lamb chump. Dreadful meat. Tough and even when we got steak knives was a gym workout. No offer to reduce bill after this. Then 20 minute wait as restaurant rearranged for second sitting. Sat alone waiting to pay... More

We are regulars to the Wayfarer, however this was our first visit with the new owners. Michelle and Neil have taken over seamlessly the quality of the food was exactly the same. Well done Tom whose fish cooking skills are excellent. The cleanliness is of the same high standard. Michelle and Neil are excellent hosts and go out of their... More

A great place to stay for a short break. Fantastic hosts good clean rooms and the best breakfast we've ever had in any guest house or hotel we've stayed. And then to top it all the food in the bistro is to die for be it fish or steak you won't be disappointed.

We stayed at the Wayarer recently on Monday night, as we have visited the Bistro when the previous owners ran it we were aware that It did not open on Mondays which is such a shame as the food is outstanding!! After a warm welcome the room we were given was very clean with a cosy homely feel and stunning... More

Just returned from a wonderful couple of days staying at the Wayfarer. What at lovely little guesthouse and Bistro. Our room had its own little balcony with a view of the bay. Lovely to sit out on a morning as the sun was coming up and on an evening as the sun was setting with a glass of wine. The... More

There are no parking facilities which makes loading, unloading difficult and aggravating. Parking is further up the road at the Post Office which is no good in the rain. The rooms are very cramped with no where to sit other than on the bed. The wardrobes are too narrow to take a normal sized coat hanger making them difficult to... More

Stayed overnight as we were meeting family. The owners were friendly and the rooms clean. The views across the bay being particularly spectacular. The rooms were quite small, but contained everything needed and the shower was excellent. Lovely Breakfast next morning.
