The next event will present Cam Penner and Jon Wood from Canada, on Halloween night. We also host regular acoustic and plugged open music sessions, and the next one of these will on Sunday afternoon, 6th October, at 2:30pm.The Quay also provides an extensive coffee and tea menu and fantastic selection of naughty yummies (cakes, desserts) that can be enjoyed all day.

On my latest visit to Minehead we decided to try a local hostelry with a reasonable menue.What a shame the cook can't cook. The pastry on the steak and ale pie was so hard it must have been made with concrete and when prized open the contents was well cooked .I suspect the whole thing must have been reheated several...

The barman was lovely, but when a young woman at the next table sent her meal back, the manager was extremely rude. It was quite embarrassing to have to hear a restaurant manager speak to a customer like that. He deserves to go out of business

We ate here on 26th June as it was close to our B&B. They only served one type of gin - no lemon. We ordered Thai and it was excellent. We found the barmaid pleasant, but having spoken to others, apparently we caught her on a good day. There were only a few other couples eating at the same time... More

We stayed in the Wetherspoons hotel but didn't fancy eating there. Looking around at somewhere to go, we found this place off the beaten track, which was perfect as it was adult weekend at Butlins. The place was dead. There was a VERY mardy girl behind the bar, and an odd man changing the ale. Thankfully, the young batman served... More

The food was fantastic but.... We had booked to eat at 8pm. Our starter did not arrive until 9.15pm! We weren't the only people who had waited an extremely long time. Despite this I must say the food was amazing and the next time we are in Minehead we will return. Hopefully we won't have to wait so long!

Just had a meal here today. Arrived at 1 and sat in the lovely beer garden. Ordered at 1.30. Food arrived at 2.10 after I had to chase it up. Two meals were ok, other meal was wrong. Girls sorted it out straight away and offered a round of drinks as well. Food was ok but not exceptional by any... More

We booked this restaurant as one of the few open in Minehead on a Monday and because of its position along the harbour. We shared a raised alcove area with several other couples which gave it an attractive ambience. Although there was a good English menu we had heard of the reputation for Thai food and went for this option.... More
