“Fresh fish and seafood, much locally caught (and served “just off the boat”) is always on the menu at this restaurant/hotel, sited superbly at the end of the quay in the picture-postcard town of Aberaeron” and notably set in the former harbourmaster's house.

“The absolutely stunning setting”“at the end of the quay with a lovely view over the harbour in picturesque Aberaeron”“is matched by above-average food and excellent friendly service” at this brasserie-with-rooms. Local seafood is the mainstay of the menu.

The “beautifully served (mostly sea) food in a very busy and atmospheric restaurant” justifies a trip to this modernised harbourside hotel with “stunning views towards New Quay and superb sunsets”. “If you’re anywhere near Ceredigion, this is the place to eat”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Reviewed 11 months, 14 days ago

"Maintaining its consistently good standard of food at either lunchtime or in the evening. The chef also stands out by understanding properly balanced, and nuanced vegetarian dishes - a rarity despite most restaurants now offering vegetarian options."
