“A Pity About the Turnover”

Barnacles Beach Cafe
Ranked #3 of 3 Coffee & Tea in Pendine
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 September 2017

We visited this café on a wet and windy day, glad to take shelter and have a snack lunch. There was only one panini left (which was OK) so I had a cheese and bacon turnover. It was just about edible, being very much overcooked. Time didn't permit asking for a replacement so I risked my teeth. A pity, because I would have given another point for the quick and friendly service.

Went for tea and cake, cost £16 for 4 hot drinks and 3 cakes. 2 of which were mouldy and crusty, the date best by was 6 weeks out of date. Rather than say sorry, the waiter argued with us, took the evidence away and said it wasn't the date on the wrapper. Clearly no customer service and rude to customers. We will not be returning!!!

Visited for lunch on a sunny day. The café is perfectly placed overlooking the beach, but had surprisingly few customers. The menu is fairly limited but despite this had a large number of unavailable items including pizza, steak pasty and bacon! They even ran out of teapots which considering there were only about three families in the café completely astounded me! When we eventually found something on the menu to order, we waited ages for the food, which was average at best when it eventually turned up. There was just one superstar (Lee) working front of house who quite literally had to deal with everything - took the orders and money, served the drinks, cake and ice cream, cleared the tables and served the food - all very politely and patiently - whilst getting no support whatsoever from the kitchen who must have been on a deliberate go slow to turn out so few orders at snail pace!! So well done Lee and I hope you get some decent help soon because this café could be so much more and absolutely has the prime position to be a success in Pendine.

Thought prices were a little expensive, but seemed avaerage for the area. Was disapointed that at high season, ice cream flavours were out of stock.

Nice food.. Lovely views.. Shame food and coffee served in takeaway containers when eating on the decking, not sure if this would be the same for eating inside.. Run out of most choices on menu, bins overflowing on decking area.. Closes far too early in summer months. Could be great.
