Eat here 3-4 times during our recent holiday in Pendine. Staff friendly and basically on the ball. Prices reasonable for standard of food which is generally quite good, but we did notice that if you were in the resturant during busy times the food quality was less than normal (which is normally quite good), with some of the food being delivered slightly over cooked/dry, so tip of the review is get there early to get the best. Great location with superb view over the Pendine beach. Recommended. Will eat there again on next trip to Pendine.

Just returned home after spending a couple of days at the Springwell Inn, Pendine, Wales. Fabulous place ! We had the four poster bedroom which was nicely furnished and decorated.
The bathroom was spacious, modern and very clean. The food and service was of a high standard, thoroughly cooked and well presented. The owners and staff made us feel really welcome and were very helpfull and friendly.
Special thanks to Paul and Hellen along with the staff," not forgetting Sue who took care of our room / breakfast service", for all their hard work. Much appreciated !! well done.
Will return in near future. Mary and Tony

We stay regularly in Pendine and have been to the Springwell Inn on a number of occasions. The extension to the property carried out a couple of years ago has really brightened the interior. We have consistently found the Sunday lunches to be very good, and our recent visit confirmed that this was still the case, notwithstanding the change to a carvery style service. The other food is something of a disappointment in comparison - very mediocre fare at excessive prices. Even the Sunday lunches are not cheap, but at least the food is good. On several visits I've not had a better than average meal on any other day. An additional problem that frequently crops up is the poor provision for vegetarians - lack of choice, poor quality and options running out even when the presence of a vegetarian has been highlighted on booking. Such problems are also dealt with in a rather surly and defensive manner. A beautiful location is let down by these problems. Worth a trip for Sunday lunch if there are no vegetarians in your party. Otherwise, don't bother!

I am sorry that we have failed to satisfy you on your last visit. I would like to point out that your table was booked at very short notice on a very busy sunday lunch time,unfortunately by the time your order was placed the item that your requested had sold out. I as the owner explained very politely,and offered four homemade vegetarian options at the childs lunchtime price in replacement which you accepted.

Spent two nights at the Springwell Inn Pendine as an anniversary weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Very nice welcome.
The room was very clean and the bed comfy.Complimentary shampoo etc. Fantastic view over Pendine sands.
The restaurant was excellent. After reading previous reviews I decided to try the local flounder and wan't disappointed. Best flounder I have ever tasted along with real home made chips. My wife had the local ham and it was delicious.
My wife and I have already decided to come back here next year for our anniversary but we may be back sooner.
Thanks for a great time.

Stayed for 3 nights . Recommended by a (travelling salesman) friend as his stop of choice when working locally. Delighted that we took his advice. Owners and staff excellent - friendly, courteous and helpful. Room comfortable, spotless, good bathroom, plenty of very hot water. Good location, right beside Pendine Sands. Highlight is food. Paul (owner/chef) certainly knows meat and selects bacon, steaks, etc himself from local butchers and sources fish from the beach - and it shows! Good, varied menu, large servings, very reasonably priced and superb quality. Good ales. Simple, generous cooked breakfast with the best bacon I've ever eaten. Ate here all 3 nights and all meals excellent. Don't be put off by the unsalubrious access to the rooms down alley to side of the building. Dont choose if you want luxurious facade, obsequious staff. Do choose if you want good, honest, comfortable accommodation, friendly atmosphere, excellent food at a good price. Things to note: standard breakfast time is 0900-0930, although this can be changed on request (but you'll feel guilty asking because Paul works so hard). This is a pub, so there is bound to be noise from the bar, but it's not too pervasive and didn't go on too long, even on the Saturday night. We're already looking for excuses to go back.

Room Tip: Our room had godd, stand-alone bath with shower attachment only. Might not suit if you want a real...
