Nice surroundings, attentive staff, delicious home cooked food with a good variety of options for all tastes - including a fussy child! Pleasant view of the sea from some tables, an added bonus with dolphins in the bay.

The food is ok, but very average and the service was a bit slow and a few mistakes were made during our meal. Great view when you sit outside though.

Brilliant food as always, great service and what a view! We go to this restaurant every year to celebrate our friends wedding anniversary and we are never disappointed. I love to eat fish when I'm out as I'm not a meat lover so this is a great restaurant for me with a brilliant choice in seafood.

We have been here many times and the Watch House never fails to impress. The restaurant has the best views in all of town looking straight out to sea from the large window at the back and when the sun is out the outside patio boasts the best outside seating around.. The food is really good here. Nothing too fancy... More

We visited this restaurant, on a recent family visit to New Quay, and were overall impressed. The location was second to none, and the food was tasty, and of good quality, however a little expensive, for what it was. The staff were friendly, and the atmosphere for good. I guess you pay a premium for the location and the views.

Been here dozens of time. Last visit the food was fantastic as usual, wine was perfectly chilled but the staff seemed 'off', the atmosphere was unsettled but I had a lovely evening. Good choice of food, daytime choice of sitting out and having amazing views. Evening very limited room. However this place has a lot more potential.
