Had a lunch with my family, just burgers and chicken strips, I had long wait at the bar and did not over enjoy the burgers , also a shortage of ketchup that day. It's a lovely location and great sitting outside however I did not think the food was good value for money

My wife and I went for early doors and something to eat three or four times during our weeks stay at Widemouth Bay. The weather was great which suited us as we had a dog with us and we are not keen on taking him into pubs or restaurants, and therefore could eat out. The staff were very friendly and... More

Another good lunch at Bay View. The food is delicious but beware, some of the portions are extremely generous! The service is friendly, efficient and attentive and the views are wonderful. We enjoy it at all times of the year.

We've been coming here for about 8 years, every single time the food, drink and feel of the place has been nothing short of excellent. The ribs are to die for (you have to check when they have these in), the scallops and crevetts salad it always perfect, burgers, pies you name it we've tried it and loved all of... More

Just spent a couple of days at the Bay View Inn, an excellent base to explore all that north Cornwall has to offer. The view from the hotel is to die for as it's only a stone throw away from the beautiful beach of Widemouth. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was great and we can't wait to come back... More

We polled up at the restaurant and managed to get a table without waiting. The place soon filled up and created a buzzing atmosphere. The food was great and they very kindly let us take the cheese board dessert in a doggy bag for us to have when we got back to our accommodation. Great kids play area outside which... More

Nice location and the waiting staff were nice and cheerfull, but the food we had was not up to restaurant standards, I had ( ham cooked in cola) which sounded very nice, when it came it was cold ham that you would put on a sandwich, I asked for some ketchup and mayo and the whole bottles were put onto...

Enjoyed a four night stay at the Bay View Inn. Excellent location, lovely views, good food and an outstanding young staff who are so cheerful and helpful. I would recommend this Inn thoroughly as a base for exploring the North Cornish Coast.

There can't be many hotels that have such stunning and picturesque views across the Bay. But this Hotel has it all. The bar and restaurants are always busy and very popular with the locals. The restaurant and bar staff are efficient, friendly and helpful. And the food is delicious, locally produced and plentyfull. My wife had the best mussells she... More

We went on a evening and it was fully booked so we decided to go back the next night, it was quieter and we got a table straight away, the food is a little over priced (think I payed about £8 for a chicken sandwich I could have made myself) however all food was lovely and the view cannot be...
