Great Carvery on Sunday followed by a live band in the Long Bar. Didn't stay but ate on two other occasions (fish and excellent), used the bars often too. The staff are lovely, service good and it is a real pleasure to visit

We thought this was a lovely little hotel, and would stay again. Very very clean, fresh and airy. Our room was large and the bed was soooo comfy. Fabulous food and really friendly & professional staff.

Popped in here, the 4 of us enjoyed beautifully made sandwiches and drunks. Good choices on menu and great wine selection. Warm and cosy feeling place and very welcoming. Good value and very clean. Staff were helpful and the hall of mirrors made us really laugh. Worth a visit and we'll definitely return when in area again.

Excellent choice on regular and special menus and a good children's menu. We had the seafood salad with avocado and prawns and the steak and the portion sizes are big. Service is good and we have eaten here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. Our favourite place to eat in Beer.

Had a lovely meal here after the grizzly run, the food was very good, the staff were very friendly and reasonably priced. Defiantly recommend popping in for a bite to eat then a stroll down the the beach.

Spent last weekend in Beer - lovely seaside village - and we chose to have Sunday dinner in this wonderful restaurant. The extensive a la carte menu (supplemented by a Daily Specials menu) caters for everyone. Food was excellent, service friendly and dogs catered for! Highly recommend.
