My wife and I had a wonderful Sunday dinner here during our recent weekend stay in Newquay. The restaurant is in a lovely position overlooking the harbour. The staff were both friendly and efficient. I had the beef dinner and my wife had the lamb, both were excellent value at £7.50 and came with great selection of seasonal veg and... More

Lovely place for a coffee or lunch on the terrace overlooking the harbour. There is also a large restaurant inside with great views but in the evening there is limited daily opening. Been lucky enough to see dolphins in the bay from the terrace twice now. Menu is quite extensive, reasonably priced and a good veggie choice. A good place... More

This restaurant was only open on Friday evening but it is the end of the season. Good friendly service. My salt and pepper squid starter was excellent as was the seafood pasta. My husband had beef stroganoff and said it was wonderful. All washed down with a nice glass of wine - well recommended.

Good views but expensive for what you get. Tables cluttered and food poor. This place is only busy because of its position

Stopped off for breakfast which was quite good and served very quickly. Friendly staff. Convenient location near the car park and harbour. Views of dolphins from our table.

We have just returned from a lovely and sunny week in New Quay (Wales). During our time there we spent several mornings on the beach, and visited the Old watch House for a spot of lunch, the menu was average but the people were lovely. We decided that we would go back one evening to see what was on offer,... More

The daily special of fresh crab sandwich tempted me in! It was beautiful and fresh. My parents shared an omelet-which they raved about ALL the next day so we had to re-visit for them to get another fix. My husband had the lasagne the second time which looked delicious. The baileys lattes are lovely!! The location of this restaurant is... More
