We had been looking forward to eating here. All reviews seemed mostly positive and our holiday cottage only metres away. Perfect! Sadly not we were so disappointed. The food at best is only average and ridiculously overpriced. My scallops were over cooked and at £10 for 3 yes 3 scallops way overpriced. My son had ribeye steak for his main... More

Nice pub, inside and out. Bought drinks there, sat out by the sea wall. Lovely. Crab sandwich was priced at £12, I'm sure it was splendid but we passed on that.

Went to the Cricket Inn at Beesands for a birthday meal recently. Very impressed. Helpful, friendly staff. Food was fantastic. We both had seafood pancake - filling, sauce and pancake were delicious, served with lovely new potatoes and fresh vegetables. Will definitely have this again. Desserts were also delicious.

Or thats what my mother in law reckoned to the scallops with mash. Very decent food, very popular and resonably priced. Competition with the Britannia@ the beach may help keep the seafood superb, it may just be a great village for food. Give both a visit

This is a wonderful local pub, that has been tastefully done up to cater for all. The locals are friendly and the staff equally so. The food in the restaurant is also SUPERB! Nigel, Stuart and James - Thanks for a good couple of nights, and questionable mornings! LOL.

We ate in this restaurant on a Monday evening and the place was full. Food was brilliant with fantastic choice of fresh fish dishes, excellent service and very reasonable prices. Highly recommend

If you have a "Things to Do Before You Die" Bucket list, prioritise a visit to this Quaint and Querky Location. Try the Crab, Lobster, Seafood Pankake, The Seafood Linguine and the Parfait. Delightful....The Head Chef is a genius....Rick Stein isn't worthy of Sous Chefing for this guy....and a really diverse selection of ales, wines and Liqueur's to complement the... More

Great pub in a beautiful quiet resort. Not much beach though....don't understand how it got an award, like all of Start Bay it only has a steep gravel beach with practically no tide, but the pub makes it worth the visit.

Thank you for your review, we are glad that you enjoyed your visit, as for the beach unfortunately over the years with bad storms and easterly winds it has caused us to lose our beach. We hope to see you again. More

We have been here before but just for Afternoon Tea. This time we visited twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The food is fantastic quality with great service and very attentive staff. Could be argued the menu is a wee bit limited, but that is splitting hairs to be honest.
