“The Bay View Inn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Food average and a little overpriced for a standard bar menu, decor shows signs of heavy wear due to holiday traffic.
Better places to go for locals and leave this one for the tourists.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

At first i was optamistic in what the place had to offer, I was told the food was good ( but everybody tastes are different ) !!!!!, I cant say how good the food tasted, amazing, fantastic, superb. i would recoment this restaurant to anyone. good size portions but leave enough room for desert i am not a big desert fan but glad i tried 1 ( all home made and you can tell, fantastic ).
A warm welcome when you arrive with some fantastic views of the seaside ( in the summer it would be beautiful ) .


The only down side is , The conservatory is a bit on the cool side,

“Good food but cold restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Just had belly busting tasty bar meal at this popular pub/restaurant cant really fault. Does what it says on the tin with a large mostly fried tasty meal (certainly didn't leave hungry)bar meal
but we were absolutely frozen sat in the conservatory part of this establishment.But have to knock them down due to the lack of heating which spoilt my other wise above average bar meal.
couldn't see any heaters and will not return this winter,roll on summer and looking forward to being hungry so we can return and enjoy the large scale meals being served in this popular establishment.If you do go this winter make sure you dress up well(hats-gloves-scarf)and enjoy filling yourselfs with good tasting tasty food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(if you are the owners and reading this please take note and heat your front restaurant area)
mind you if you eat this size every night for a while you wont need heating as the extra pounds will soon pile on and help with insulation................
