We went here twice whilst staying in Widemouth for the last week in August. Bar service with queues to order both times and no room inside both times so quite popular. No problem for us to sit outside with the dog as the views over Widemouth bay are fantastic especially from the upper deck. We ordered two fish and chips... More

Well, we finally decided to stay at the Bay View Inn. We know that that the food is good from previous experiences, but to disappear upstairs to a room with a view of the sea after a sumptuous meal was heaven. Excellent in every way.

Would recommend to anyone simply for the fact that the egg was given a 10/10 score from my 10 year old daughter and the fish and chips... More

Very reasonably priced food for the quality of it. Friendly helpful staff and gorgeous views. Can't wait to visit again next year. Excellent. When we were there we heard a woman complaining over the delivery of food which was all of her own making. I think the people who find fault with the slightest of things, don't really get the...

We had a meal here last summer and enjoyed it so much we thought we'd stay this summer. Room wasn't huge. This wasn't too much of a problem as we didn't spend much time in there. It was comfy and clean. The good was delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful when we had queries about local things. The beach location... More

I had a great time staying at the Bay View. The room suited my needs and there is free wifi. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. Amazing views of the bay while eating breakfast. I was sad to leave.

I have been to various 5 star hotel and various Micheline star restaurants. All I can say is that I prefer staying and eating here. Yes the view is amazing. The food is great and the accommodation is brilliant. It's difficult to describe how relaxed it is. It does posh it does relaxed it does fun. The employees work very... More

Title says it all really. Great food, massive portions and extremely well cooked. Brilliant staff who were very attentive and friendly. Recommend booking in high season as many people were turned away while we were there; had a mixture of starters, specials and à la carte. Make sure you have a big appetite when visiting especially if you have the... More
