Had a meal here yesterday. Beautiful pizzas and fish and chips. Lovely atmosphere and really convenient for the railway which we had arrived off.

Thank Adamss1

We visited on a Friday evening during the local Butlin's holiday week-end event.
I selected the pumpkin red onion tagine with white rice and fresh vegetables. To be honest there was little sauce although the rice and vegetables were properly cooked.
This amounted to £8.90, a good price but nothing special to remember.

My dining partner selected the fish and chips. This had plenty of batter but not so much fish. This puzzles me. Perhaps it is bought in frozen and then just placed in the deep fat fryer?

There is a large pizza oven in the front window which had 2 bakers in attendance. Perhaps this restaurant specialises in pizzas?

However there was worse to come. I also chose a pint of "Tribute" beer which is served from the bar, not in cans. It is a light and smooth beer which holds the side of the glass as consumed. It is a good product made by the St. Austell brewery at 4.2% volume.
I found that it was only an average beer with a "stingy nettle" taste so perhaps not quite to my liking. This cost £3.80 a pint. What I found appalling was that recently most bars in Minehead increase their bar prices to match those of Butlin's which is about £4, all with the exception of the town's Wethersoon's pub.

The remedy is simple, either charge normal prices or else drink in Wetherspoon's. Boycott. Simples!

Having just installed a new pizza oven and promoting itself as a pizza bar and bistro we thought we’d give it a try.
Our daughter is restricted to a gluten-free diet so we phoned to enquire as to whether there were gluten-free pizzas available.
Having been assured this was no problem we took the drive into town, settled into our table, ordered drinks and just thought we’d double check GF options.
Needless to say, there was no gluten free availability! Despite specifically calling and being told there was.
Moved on to another restaurant that could actually be bothered to make the effort.

The hotel is situated very handy for the beach and the town. It is very busy especially on a Saturday afternoon with people watching rugby and football, but the room we had was quiet, compact but very clean. The breakfast was good, the staff were friendly and helpful. Parking was not easy as there is only a small car park.
