Great Food

All food was well cooked and presented. Not a huge menu, but something for everyone. Breakfast was a mix of buffet and table service. Great views from the dinning room. I must come back in the summer so that I can have breakfast outside.

We visited on a quiet, out of season, Saturday night. The atmosphere was quiet but relaxed. We enjoyed a very good meal with good service. The prices are a little steep, but not outrageous. If I was local I would definitely visit again.

I went here as I had an offer but if I had just been on a drive by would not have gone in. The entrance and sign from the road is possibly why when we went to The Bay the place was empty. Having found the place the walk up from the road left a lot to be desired as... More

The first thing I noticed was the blonde waitress with short hair was trying hard to be professional and confusing it with surly attitude instead. This immediately put me on guard. The prices of wine. Having recognised several of the bottles on the list and seeing the mark up on them I felt that the prices inhibit the likelihood of... More
