#1 of 7 in Yarmouth
The Bugle Coaching Inn is a delightful 16th Century Inn, steeped in history and charm. We are situated in the heart of Yarmouth, a busy, sailing, fishing Town, in The Square. We are a stones throw from the ferry terminal and bus station. Our busy Pub has lots of nooks and crannies, catering for everyones needs. We have a separate dining area that offers table service where booking is essential. The rest of our large pub is open to all, with a large conservatory area overlooking our courtyard garden and two front dining areas looking over the bustling square. We have two large gardens, which are full of beautiful flowers, and is bathed in sunshine all day where everyone can enjoy dining 'al-fresco'. Our talented team of Chefs have created a fine menu, and extensive specials board, full of locally caught seafood, straight from our harbour. All our food is locally sourced and seasonal, and lovingly prepared by our kitchen team for you to enjoy. Our seven newly re furbished letting rooms are over the first and second floors. There are stairways to these rooms, and due to the age of the listed building, we have no lifts etc. Our rooms are sympathetically decorated to the age and atmosphere of the Inn, with sloping ceilings and low eves in some of the rooms, all adding to the charm and character of this wonderful olde Inn. We offer a very popular full English breakfast menu, which is included in our room tariff. All our rooms are en suite, with flat screened tv and wi fi access. Our friendly, busy Inn reflects the relaxed, unique atmosphere of this pretty fishing town, and we hope that you enjoy your stay with us, John and Claire

We stayed for one night whilst walking the Isle of Wight Coastal Path booked through Absolute Escapes. For an old Coaching Inn, the room was modern, very well furnished, spotlessly clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and we had an excellent meal in the evening. The only downside was the hotel only does breakfasts at a weekend.

The manager was very friendly and humourous. Our room was nicely furnished with a coffee machine which took some time to master but was very nice! The bathroom was basic but very clean. There was no breakfast available due to staff shortage, which was a surprise, but there are excellent alternatives close by (eg Gossips).

Visited on a Thursday lunchtime with my friends We were all pleased with our meals I had the steak open sandwich-the friendly waitress was happy to alter the meal to suit my taste ! Perfectly cooked steak on delicious bread We also took advantage of the 33% off app offer The pub has a nice atmosphere and food is reasonably priced I look forward to returning!

Lovely waitresses.... that's about it..... We popped in on a Sunday lunchtime, we hadn't booked but that didn't seem to be an issue and we were promptly seated. After being shown to our table our drink order was taken and our drinks were served quckly, this looked like this was going to be a meal to remember, sadly it was for all the wrong reasons. Both my wife and I ordered the Sunday lunch. When the meal arrived the meat was strangely served on top of 3 small roast potatoes and a wierd looking cube of which I soon discovered was a block of stuffing, along side this was a small bowl of veg which consisted of 1 floret of cauliflower cheese, 1 floret of broccoli, a bit of mashed swede and a very small potion of red cabbage., this we soon found out was a sharing portion for 2 people, sadly at a push it was a childs portion and the cauli and brocolli was so so hard it couldn't be shared as the meat cleaver needed to cut it wasn't supplied with the cutlery, I question the portion size with the waitress and she apologised and went off to get the rest of the vegatables,'so we finally got somewhere close to an adult meal and I can live with the uncooked veg and the waitress was still lovely all the way through. So why after all that have I left a 1 star review and not maybe a 3, I'll tell you why, ...... because after I'd paid the bill (nearly 50 quid) Irealised that they had actually charged me 3 quid for the second little bowl of hard veg, You only get one chance at a first impression and sadly The Bugle failed badly. I think it's safe to say we won't be rushing back in a hurry.

he Bugle is situated well and looks wonderful as an old Inn so my expectations were that the character of the place means I did not expect the rooms to be exceptional. I was given the suite which had a room off the bedroom with a couch and TV. The couch was so uncomfortable to sit on as it was so old it had no cushioning so perching on a wooden frame was not my idea of fun. The toilet seat was loose so the first time I sat on it it slipped to one side. I left it the first night as I was very tired, on the second night I offered to fix it myself but they gave me tools but they did not fit. The promise was made to fix for the 3rd night - it was not done, so I sat on porcelain for 3 days. The excuse of covid was trotted out for no offer of breakfast - not even a continental was available. I was offer a free burger as compensation for the toilet seat. The food was adequate but no more then that. This is not cheap and the budget hotels are cheaper and in this case better value. The staff were friendly. I understand in a listed building plumbing can be difficult but toilet macerator was smelly and noisy

The Bugle never fails us. OK, room only for the time being but with Gossips cafe close by, not a problem. A real warm, welcoming atmosphere which is obviously well supported by the friendly locals. Good beer and albeit limited menu - tasty pub food. Stuart, the bar manager, looked after us admirably and kept us entertained with his “party tricks”. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable, a bit quirky and showing signs of wear and tear but that all in all offers value for money. If I had one criticism it would be the state of the curtains which could certainly do with some t l c. Can certainly recommend.

We live locally & have been frequenting this Pub on & off for many years, but I have to say tonight was simply perfect. We were a large party of 15 which is no easy task, however service was quick, attentive & friendly. Most importantly though, the food was fabulous! Very good quality pub fare (probably more akin to restaurant standard) decent portions and all hot….zero complaints from anyone in our party. Even better at this time of year with all the beautiful Xmas decorations combined with the cosy pub feel. So glad to see The Bugle back to it’s absolute best!

I enjoyed a steak pie the following day. However the fish pies on the last night we’re only warm sadly.. However . Great pub & enjoyable stay.
