We've eaten here four times this week.The food is excellent, varied and reasonably priced, lots of lovely sea food and a stunning huge cheese board. The staff are efficient, friendly & helpful. Beautiful views are a bonus.

Wonderful meal again here, very clean and happy staff who ask how the meal is half way through eating. Food came out very quickly but during summer season it's advised to book table as gets very busy.

Been coming here for around 10 years and it always delivers great quality, nice selection of drinks and, of course, that view!! Friendly staff and reasonably priced - definitely worth a regular visit.

Only used the pub & restaurant. The food was delicious, amasing steaks. My daughter had gammon steak on a meat platter, biggest meal we have ever seen. The staff are all very friendly & welcoming. Would highly recommend the Bay View & would visit again when back in Widemouth Bay

We have been a number of times over the last few years and this pub has kept drawing us back. Ideal for Families, Couples, Surfers, Friends and Dog Friendly, this place is awesome. It has a rustic surfing feel to it with lots of decks and levels and rooms to feel comfortable in. The service is friendly, easygoing and relaxed... More

What a fantastic pub! Fantastic food, dog friendly and the service was exceptional. Would definitely recommend and hope to return. Good choice of specials but also a good menu choice. Excellent facilities for children also. When the weather is good excellent seating outside with fantastic views.
