The Bay View has always been one of my favourite places to visit. It's changed hands recently so a bit of the old old atmosphere and that feeling of coming home seems to have diminished, but hopefully, with time, the new managers will overcome that....More

Thanks, Kate, we're working hard to balance making necessary changes whilst retaining the same warm family welcome and atmosphere that we loved about this place ourselves. Hope to see you again soon.

Hey guys, it was lovely to have you with us and so glad you enjoyed it. Think I'm happier with the sea outside my window though!

I guess the fact that the Bay View has always been busy when we've been there, is probably one of the best recommendations it can have! The food is good, there's quite a wide variety, there's a range of sitting - inside the building, in...More

After seeing the amazing reviews for this place we decided to stop off for an evening meal. The food was okay but nothing special and the presentation wasn't very exciting. Dog-friendly and nice view but overall overpriced for what it was.

We sure do and we've revamped it for the summer with all new swings and slide, fresh sand and a welcome lick of paint. We've added more and new shaded seating areas for parents to keep an eye on their children too.
