This is a well sired restaurant on the main road before you reach the main hill into the centre of the town. The food is fresh and depends on the local catch, fantastic sea food well prepared and imaginatively presented

Having eaten here a few years ago and had a great meal and service, I was keen to take my partner at the weekend. I didn't realise it had since changed hands. We both ordered steak but mine was very tough and cooked well done instead of the medium I ordered. No one came to ask if the meal was...

We visited the Wayfarer on recommendation of our hosts at The Grange. We weren't disappointed, we all chose the tempura prawns which were delicious, the steaks were excellent and cooked to our liking. We were served by two young ladies who had just recently started working, they looked after us really well.

We visited the restaurant while we were staying in Robin Hoods bay for my birthday. We booked well in advance but could still only get a 7pm booking so if you want to be sure of a table then book early. It was well worth it as our meal was excellent. We ate from the fresh fish daily specials menu...

The rooms are very nicely refurbished. Neil and Michelle done an excellent job with the refurbishment very boutique. Reasonably priced for what you get you'll pay more in some places for a lot less. Rooms as good as any I've stayed in including some bigger and supposedly posh hotels. And breakfast as good as ever.

Went with a party of four plenty of choice on the menu all prepared fresh (No boil in the bag here) Staff pleasant and seemed interested in ensuring we had every thing we wanted. You need to make a reservation as it gets very busy always a good sign

Thank you so much to Michelle and her team for helping me to arrange a surprise celebration with friends for my partner's 50th birthday :-) The rooms were ready early and were clean, comfortable and cosy for our arrival on the wild, wet and windy Tuesday just after Christmas. Dinner in the bistro was delicious with attentive service throughout. Breakfast...

Very comfortable rooms re-furbished to a high standard. Good hospitality, very welcoming and helpful staff. Excellent food. We were well looked after in every way. Free parking in nearby car parks is a big advantage

You need to book to be sure of a table even in quieter parts of the season. Friendly, helpful staff and good, interesting dishes (e.g. sea bass stir-fry). The desserts sound wonderful and rather than struggle to make up our minds we opted for the sharing platter of cheesecake, fruit crumble and chocolate brownie with ice cream. Delicious!!
