We had a great lunch here, good selection of drinks, very friendly staff and plenty to choose off the menu. With great views of the bay, it was a great venue to start our weekend in Cornwall. It was hard to choose from the menu or the special boards. I would recommend the fish and chips in a Friday.

Visited the Bay View for a birthday meal for 30 people, we pre ordered most of our meals on the request of the management to make the operation smooth on the day. People had various starters ranging from soup and prawn cocktail to gorgeous pate. Main meals were fab too, I had fish pie, some had steak and others fish... More

Stopped in here early lunchtime after a blustery winters day walk on Widemouth beach. It was quite a busy lunchtime considering its out of season.The Fire was lit which was soooo welcoming.I had the soup of the day and a sandwich which was HUGE but it was very yummy I think it was the roasted tomato/vegetable with a ham sandwich....

Stopped in for an evening meal as our hotel was having the staff Christmas Party. The welcome was really friendly and we enjoyed a really tasty meal. My rack of ribs was pretty daunting and the scallop/crevette dish was deemed very tasty indeed. The beer and cider were very drinkable too.

Excellent friendly service and lovely setting. The menu has an excellent choice from steaks to fresh local sea food. I would recommend that you have an appetite before you arrive as the portion sizes are very generous. Had a lovely meal will be returning again, also great value.

My first visit, and I must say how impressed I was. Lovely friendly atmosphere, beautiful views over the beach and the food was delicious. Freshly cooked to order from local suppliers. The staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

We don't live far from the Bay View (we raid from neighbouring Devon) and call in for a meal many times year. Our last visit (last week) we took two friends for a meal. We had no problem recommending it as we've never had a bad meal there. We all chose the gammon. I think the plate was about 20"... More

Dear Russel G, This is such a bizarre review. Your Average review is due to having a single room with a single bed? You booked a single room and paid a single room rate so we are slightly baffled why you may expect more? We did have other guests staying on Wednesday evening, in fact you spoke to them over...
