“Not bad but maybe could do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The service is a little haphazard, which makes for a little confusion. A quick 10 minute meeting at the beginning of each shift may help. Food is served in large portions, but could have a little more care taken in presentation. Ok though. Well done.

“No push chairs allowed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Turned up with my family. On entry was told I could not bring in my push chair. I explained I would fold it up and keep my baby in his seat. But was told that was not possible. So I had to take the chair back to the car. Not the best start to our visit. We then ordered burger, and fish. Burger was raw and fish sub standard. Also over heard others saying how bad things were. Then saw a old gentleman being turn away because he had a dog. No dogs in the bar any more no push chairs even when folded away, would understand if this was a up market place, but this is certainly not a elite establishment. The managers should be ashamed.

“GREAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Went for Sunday lunch. I'd never visited, but husband had.......donkey's years ago. We had a warm welcome, were shown a good table and were served quickly. The restaurant was fairly busy, but not heaving. Drinks were good, my coffee hot with choice of cream or milk, and Guinness, really cold. Sunday roasts....pork or beef....lovely, great slab of meat, lots of fresh veg, extra gravy and all the usual trimmings. All piping hot and well presented. Was really full, had no room for puds, but judging by other diners plates - all dishes huge! A great place for families with children, elderly and people in wheelchairs all accommodated for quickly. We are quite picky, but could not find a fault with anything, so look forward to the next visit. Great location too, overlooking Kingsgate Bay.....reminded me of Cornwall a bit. Great! Really good value for money.

“Redressing the balance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

I wanted to write this review because of the poor reviews I have read. The Captain Digby is good value in my opinion. I have enjoyed the food there on several lunchtime occasions, not perfect perhaps, but I have not had a bad meal so far. Possibly it depends on the time and pressure of the restaurant, which can fill quite quickly. The staff have been attentive, friendly and helpful and I am certainly going back. There is a seating area outside overlooking the bay and spectacular scenery. We arrived in a storm once and watched entralled as the waves crashed against the cliffs over the bay. Good seafood platter that day, too, I remember. Coffee club weekday mornings, I think.
