Enjoyed a quiet meal here. Staff were efficient and attentive. Food was fine. Nothing to write home about and a little over priced compared with other good restaurants in the area.

Delicious cream tea with large, fluffy scones, clotted cream & jam with a choice of tea or coffee. Dinner and breakfast excellent using high quality locally sourced products. Not the cheapest of menus, especially as some required additional side dishes which incur additional expense, but the meals were very well presented and definitely an enjoyable treat. No complaints from our... More

My wife and I visited to celebrate my birthday. After a pleasant drink in the bar area we enjoyed a simple 2 course lunch. The quality was excellent as was the friendliness and efficiency of the waiting staff. We dine at the Bay 3 or 4 times a year and we are looking forward to their next themed evening.

A group of us booked for afternoon tea at £14.50 per head but were disappointed by the sparsely filled sandwiches and rather poor little cakes and dry, unwarmed scones. Not good value was the unanimous verdict. A real shame, lovely view and setting.
