“Better than expected”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Have to say we were very pleasantly surprised with the food we had here. Having arrived that day at The Bay we decided to walk down to the pub for our evening meal. The quality and the quantity of the food was spot on, which was a pleasant surprise based on our experience of similar type establishments. The food was not over priced and was very tasty. My parents went later on in the week, and my Dad, who has been craving a good steak for months, said that he had just had one of the best steaks he had eaten in years which takes some doing as he is one of the most critical people when it comes to food you could wish to meet.

“Great food and drink! Warm welcome.”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Standard pub fare but well executed and served buy a friendly bunch. Second time I ate here the kitchen had officially closed (8:30pm I think on a Sunday) but they squeezed my order in and without making me feel like a nuisance.
They have however very recently set on a young lad with a midlands accent who is nosy, over bearing and over familiar; time for him to go?

“Sorry but disappointing”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Went for a meal on Monday evening 7.30pm ordered the meal lovely friendly staff, on the contrary food was disappointing, the food was warm but the portions poor, we were going to complain but a party of eight were complainig at the same time,and a different party complained that the food was not up to usual standards and they had found a hair in their meal. We have eated here lots of times but I have to agree with a previous comment by 9 it gets cold, we mentioned this last summer when they replied that there was a problem with chimney flue ----- hello a year later still not fixed where are your priorities. The pub is lovely the atmosphere is also lovely but need to improve on the food Sorry!
