I would like to agree with the management response posted 2nd June. I have visited the Bay View a number of times for food from Middle Earth (Spreyton, Devon) and I have always had a lovely meal and wonderful service. I wished I lived nearer to enjoy the pub more (although I already have a wonderful pub, The Tom Cobley),... More

We always visit The Bay View Inn when we're on holiday in the area, we have never been disappointed over the last 5 years. We had lunch there twice last week both times very good - fish and chips recommended. Dogs welcome in the bar.

I recently stayed here with my partner for a quiet weekend away. I was very suprised of how well the room was looked after it was very clean, neat and tidy. After putting our luggage away me and my partner decided to go downstairs for a few drinks and something to eat. I went up to the bar to order,... More

I was expecting a run down holiday let for the meagre £45 a night bed and breakfast, but I was pleasantly surprised. My single en-suite was very small, but also beautifully arranged and spotlessly clean and warm. At Bay View with its wonderful position, you are not going to spend much time in your room anyway ! The young staff... More

We have been visiting the Bayview Inn for several years and with fabulous views of the beach, a buzzy atmosphere, lively staff and great food it became a firm favourite. We were a bit disappointed with our last visit a couple of months ago but put it down to an off day and booked a family lunch this week. The... More

We most certainly do not feel we are "going downhill" This is our family livelihood so we strive to provide excellent food and service... More

Excellent B&B with delicious meals right beside the coastpath.Breakfast superb full English enough to boost the energy for the serious path climbing to come. Bedrooms comfortable and recently refitted so hot showers and comfortable beds for recovery of those aching muscles. No need to leave the premises for good selection of evening meal specials with seafood options as well. If... More

I went out with five friends for a meal here. We had a lovely meal with most of us opting for the Friday night fish and chip special. There was an batter free option which suited me better than the battered fish. The others had steak and chicken all of which was well cooked and tasty. We entered into the... More

We have had drinks, lunch and dinner here - all were very good. Homemade soup and the flat bread with dips were delicious. A regular place to go when we're in the area. A good vantage point on windy days looking over the beach. Plenty of parking space, open all days and something for everyone, whatever their age.
