An ok pub with nice views but food very average.

The fish and chips were pricey, very average and no mushy peas. General ambiance pleasant but not much room for groups. Nice views of bay.

Stopped here to eat after a days walking, we'd already been in for a beer previously. Family friendly, pet friendly and people friendly place. Fairly efficient service and good but basic, fresh grub. Reasonably priced and tasty. Outdoor seating to enjoy the views, obviously very much in demand. Inside cosy fires. Would definitely eat here again. I think they could... More

We had our wedding reception in the bottom bar at the Bay Hotel on 14.03.15. We visit The Bay hotel regularly and thought it would be nice to have our wedding reception there after getting married at Swell. We arranged it with Dan in November 2014 and then kept in touch with him by e-mail about various details. On the... More

Having visited the Bay during our first visit to Robin Hoods bay in 2013, we returned this week, unfortunately only for a quick drink this time, as the food on our previous visit had been delicious. July 2013 was a heatwave and we were sat outside overlooking the beach; in March 2015 we were sat by the cosy log fire... More

My wife and I spent two evenings in the pub, eating on both occasions. As vegetarians, it was good to see plenty of options on the menu. The food was good and the hospitality in the pub was friendly. The bar has brilliant views over the harbour and for a chilly March evening, it was perfect for a beer, good... More
