    The restaurant was lovely warm and friendly. The food was perfect and very tasty. Only one bad thing there is a very steep hill to get there and it’s very tricky to get back up if your driving and it’s wet.

    Went to celebrate my friend’s 70th birthday and the experience was all that she could have wished for. Nice attentive but not over the top service. Food delicious, crab, prawns, mussels fresh and yummy. Requested a window seat, given without issue and even gave a complimentary drink for the birthday girl. Homemade fudge with coffees also very tasty. Will definitely be back.

    I’m afraid it was mediocre at best . The service was average , queuing at the bar for food when it’s an expensive meal when you’re sat in the restaurant is just nuts you’re not a cheap place to eat . When I voiced this to the gentleman when I paid the bill he seemed shocked at the mere mention that I was less than delighted . The meal for 3 of us cost £85 and one was a child ! We won’t be back I’m afraid

    We sat in the POD private dining area and it was a lovely spot!! We ordered two goat's cheese salads and a salmon and crayfish salad - all of which were delicious!

    My wife and I stayed at the Cary Arms for six nights and dined in the restaurant on five of them. We also had breakfast there each morning, several lunches and an afternoon tea. The food was good, particularly the fish main courses. The service was usually excellent - thanks especially to Jack, Tony and Anne Marie. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals at the Cary Arms.

    Stunning location with beautiful coastal views (always a seal in the bay) a large terrace area and a well planted, colourful garden. Very friendly, efficient and attentive staff - just missed being welcomed when I first arrived. A bit dark but cosy inside with slightly old fashioned decor and furniture. A very relaxed, unpressurised atmosphere though, with a variety of table locations in intimate settings, all with superb views, and dog friendly. Varied vegan/vegetarian menu and good quality food - very tasty and well presented. Bit disappointed with difference in quantity though, depending on what you order. I had a red pepper stuffed with tomato and couscous and nothing else came with it - next time I would order extra side dishes. My friends ordered other meals that came with chips or potatoes, and veg or salad. Overall very enjoyable experience though and would definitely eat there again.

    We were in the conservatory part of the restaurant. Light and airy with impressive views of the sunset and sea. Food was delicious, service excellent, and gentle piano (live) music in the background. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are friendly and very professional. Could not have asked for more.

    Lovely relaxing setting with great views. Good food, fresh and well presented with nice attention to detail. Friendly but unintrusive staff. Lovely birthday treat and the 'happy birthday' in chocolate writing on our daughter's dessert plate was appreciated. Will return soon! Very expensive to stay here though, think we'll only be eating here!

    The location of the Cary Arms is stunning looking out over the bay, the staff were very attentive and especially catered for my needs as a vegan, there were plenty of options both for the evening meal and breakfast.
