Our first visit to this little town after we saw it featured on a BBC property programme. We intended to have a picnic on the beach - but the tide was in and there was very little beach left to see! We had a pleasant...More

we went for my Mothers birthday and had a lovely table by the window, had scallops chorizo and pea puree which was tasty and well cooked, followed by lemon sole, which was beautifully fresh and delicious (little bit too much garlic in the potatoes) and...More

Fantastic location and a captive audience should make a perfect recipe for a top notch restaurant/pub especially after a huge refit but alas no. Floor, tables,cutlery, glasses were dirty. Seated straight away in a virtually empty restaurant then waited 10 minutes to be offered a...More

A beautiful place that enables you to watch the world go by. A sense of peace comes over you when here and also good for kids and dogs. A great place for exercising as well with great scenery. Will certainly be returning in our T4.

Minnis Bay is a relaxing and quiet place to walk, relax and sit and watch the world go by, it's not that commercialised and can be easily reached with good parking

Minnis Bay - a golden beach with clean water good enough to swim in. No amusement arcades, no burger vans - just beachuts and deckchairs and make your own fun.

Gorgeous sandy beach! There is even a tidal pool. Great place for a chilled out walk along the seaside, but be warned- many others will have the same idea!

Great location good food nice atmosphere, but service is very slow- more staff or better staff training ? Will try again in a few weeks time . Hopefully things will improve.

A lovely beach area, with a gentle slope in for paddling. The sea comes in quite far and amusingly quickly - we watched as our sandcastle village was consumed by the gentle waves! Lovely place, boats to watch and good sand.

Sitting in restaurant by entrance door and it was draughty . We shut door at least 12 times. I can't believe after a refit and spending over £1,000,000 they couldn't spend another £100 for a door closer. Even staff don't shut door going in and...More

Hi I am afraid that dogs are not permitted on the beach until the end of September.
