Beautiful views

Sat in the enormous window, you can see out across the bay of New Quay. A perfect setting for some breakfast on a sunny day.

We had brunch here with coffee and tea. The coffees were first class. Our food was good and all four of us ate something different. We visited on a couple of occasions and the staff were really nice and helpful. On a fine day there is a lovely view from the veranda - so sit outside.

The service was great. The food was delicious and the view was amazing! We were a bit disappointed having just spent 2 hours on a boat trip and spotting no dolphins. We sat by the windows and while eating and gazing out to sea, I spotted 1, then 2 dolphins. This was a nice surprise as we never expected it.... More

We stopped here for a quick drink and snack one morning after walking around New Quay. I had hot chocolate and welsh cakes, my husband had coffee and toast. We sat outside making the most of the lovely weather and looking at the beautiful views. Friendly, efficient service and we both enjoyed the food/drink we ordered. Would definitely visit here...

We had a lovely little family lunch here. I could have died when we first sat down, our little 3 year old started playing up, not majorly but it was quiet and there were all older couples that had disapproving gazes... Then... the lady came to see if we wanted drinks and was brilliant talking to my little girl and... More

I had a breakfast and a lunch at the Old Watch House. The range of food is very good and it has some nice open-air seating overlooking the harbour. The breakfast was excellent, as was the whitebait I had for lunch. I would certainly eat here again - the staff are pleasant and very obliging, even at their busiest.
