Just returned from a meal at the Bay View Inn, Widemouth Bay. Booked via email last week, and booked table for 7.30pm. On arrival at this time was advised by staff there was an hour and a half wait for food, despite booking a table. We actually ate our main meal at around 9.30pm. We ordered starters only because we... More

We're always looking for a pub with enough for the kids to do so that we can have a quick drink in peace and this one fitted the bill nicely! Having spent a glorious day on Widemouth Bay Beach, we were pleased to see that the pub garden housed lots of play equipment and a large bouncy castle (£1 each... More

We came here to eat after a lovely afternoon on the beach. I feel I should write a review as we were so impressed. We are a family of four (7&14 yr olds) and all of us were happy! Such lovely, friendly staff and the portions were so generous and really great food! Fantastic views of Widemouth bay and spacious,... More

We came here on a Thursday evening to conclude our family holiday. We booked the night before and were given the option of 6pm or 8pm due to high demand. This we were given with an automatic sea view which turned out to be delightful. We arrived just before 6 and were shown to our table, given a menu and... More

Have just visited this excellent family pub, and all I can say is excellent. The bar staff especially the tall young lad were very welcoming and the food was hot and prepared without fault. Will definitely be visiting when I pass again 😀 😄😄😄

We had a late lunch here today for my mums birthday. Ham egg and chip was amazing, fish pie was lovely and prawn sandwich on flat bread was great. Customer service very good, and plenty of pleasant staff. We always return and we shall again.

When we arrived, the place was only about half full but most of the empty tables were reserved. We found the last empty table big enough for six people that wasn't showing a reserved sign and sat down. Although the table was clear it (and the floor around it) was extremely dirty. We sat for about 10 minutes and looked... More

We are writing in response to your review to clear up a few of the points you made. Firstly Thank you for your comments regarding our well stocked bar and the cheery staff. The table that you sat on had only just that moment been vacated therefore our team had not had a chance to clean nor pop a reserved... More

Went to the restaurant on a (shall we try here) well what a surprise. The meal was fab, I had the pie and my husband had the curry. We were blown away with the quality, portions, and presentation of the food and the price. We also went back a further 2 times to eat, where we had the fish and... More

The bar manager named Shrek is amazing. He has such a good sense of humour and makes every visit entertaining. Food is freshly cooked and worth the wait. Beautiful setting right by the beach. See you again soon Shrek.

Just returned from a meal at the Bay View Inn. As always it was fantastic food and service. Three of us had favourites from the standard menu and three others had from the specials board. The ribs special is something to behold! Don't forget to leave room for a delicious pudding, you won't want to miss out!
