I always favoured The Bridge Tavern, however since losing their head chef the place has gone downhill (such a shame). Our last visit to The Still and West was just before the closure to refurb. Impressed with the quality of our meals and service very personable. The restaurant is in a marvelous location and can't wait for them to reopen.... More

Entertained a couple of business associates here. Good food and good beer at very reasonable prices. One of the few authentic pubs in the area. Staff very helpful. Well worth it

It's a bit tatty inside but it will be closed soon for refurbishment so a welcome improvement hopefully. Great location with outdoor space for the summer.

We hope you love the new look S&W when we reopen - although we need to bring the pub into 2017, there is a keen aim to retain the traditional and nautical feel to it! More

Been here about 4 times - usually good or very good and of course the magnificent views. Seems like the meal prices are creeping up each time we visit but the quality of food is not improving. Service was reasonable but without any enthusiasm. Can accept they had an off day on this occasion, but two of us had a... More

Booked a table for late lunch today. It's always a pleasure coming here, even just for a drink. Very friendly staff. Curtis was very attentive and professional. Myself and friend had 1 of the specials (haddock) couldn't fault it. Always have lovely food here. I definitely recommend. I will return soon.

My wife and I visited this pub on 10th November along with 6 friends for lunch. The liver was over cooked and inedible. The fish cakes were 95% potato. The fresh bream was good. The manager did refund one fish cake and the one liver. My follow up e mail has been ignored.

For far too long this pub has coasted along gently charging well over the odds on account of the lovely view. Tourists don't get a second chance but locals can choose.

I like the bar downstairs, the views are great and there's a good atmosphere here. Upstairs in the restaurant I found the ambience to be loud and unpleasant and the food was a little hit and miss, the roast beef dinner was pretty good but pricey in my opinion, the red snapper not so great.

4 very different diners : gluten free and vegetarian, older less liking to rich a meal, a child with a hearty appetite and one lover of a good old roast. Piping soup though not burnt and choc full of taste. Lovely mushrooms. Bearing in mind that Christmas was over a month ago and I still remember it stacks up well.... More
