Good with great views

Good clean place, great food, friendly staff. Seperate veggie section on menu and not run of the mill options. Great views out to sea from few tables plus outside verandah. Not cheap but quality food.

I have been travelling to New Quay for many years and this place has never changed. The options available for food and drink during the daytime is fantastic with everything being reasonably priced. Staff are also super friendly

We said "no" and she said the table was reserved,we... More

Quick meal after Dolphin Spotting trip. Bit unclear the protocol of sit and orders taken versus order at the bar! (the bane of the UK)! and probably changes on demand! We sat an ordered, good veggie options, goodish fish options although not enough local catch for me, given we are virtually on the sea, but better than the chippies. Service... More

We had eaten a large late breakfast so only wanted a light snack and a coffee at mid day. It was a wet day mid March and quite a few places closed being out of season. After initially finding...

My husband and I visit here often. The lamb pie is delicious and the deep fried parsnips are gorgeous. This restaurant has a fantastic view over the bay.

I had lunch in The Old Watch House after having a lovely Sunday Lunch here before. However our lunch was not to the same experience as the Sunday Lunch. My mussels had no flavour at all and were really small which really surprised me as we are right by the sea. I had to dip each one in tartare sauce... More
