4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were a party of 6 and we had many different orders. Everything was very good and the bowls of mushy peas were plentiful. Good size pieces of fish and plenty of chips. Very nice atmosphere inside and they were very busy. Great little find.

Came across this place by accident on a day out. So surprised - it looks like a little hut but when you walk in it is a charming restaurant. The food looked wonderful but unfortunately they were fully booked. So we booked for the following weekend and drove over a hundred miles for our meal. So worth it!! One sea... More

Recommended to visit whilst in the area, the road to the restaurant does not inspire confidence. However once located Sole Bay is an oasis of charm. Stopping for a light lunch I was staggered by the size and quality of the cod and chips I was served. Light, crispy batter and fresh succulent fish were as good as any as... More

A few of us visited Solebay a while ago, and this time we brought along the rest of the gang! All agreed that the venue and the meal were first class...whether it was simply fish & chips or a sharing crab platter ( with extra oysters). I was right the first time I reviewed this venue...it doesn't get any better!

Popped in for a cod and chips with mushy peas lunch today - our first visit. Very friendly service and nice to have the chance to sit down to eat...especially out of the cold. Fish was fresh, batter light and tasty and the chips were just right! Along with a decent Sauvignon Blanc it was a great meal and very... More

I bought several dressed crabs from the wet fish counter of this establishment. I specifically asked whether the crabs had been frozen and were told they were fresh in today. Well I can confirm, now having tried one at home, they had definitely been previously frozen and were totally tasteless and watery. Thrown in the bin - total waste of... More

Three of us ate here on a wet Wednesday lunchtime in November. The restaurant is comfortable and has a lot of character. The service is efficient and friendly. We had a fabulous mixed seafood platter for two (portions are extremely generous), an excellent baguette, butter, a bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and coffees. Our bill, excluding service, was £64.50.... More

Today is our 28th wedding anniversary. We have celebrated in Brussels, Portugal, St Ives, France, Tenerife, Cheltenham (!) but never has a meal been so memorable. Don't be fooled by the exterior, you might think you are in the wrong place, it just looks like a fisherman's hut from the outside, but inside is cosy, warm and calmly decorated. Service... More
