Excellent breakfast served by friendly and helpful staff. Will continue to use Watch House as well as its sister restaurants (Clubhouse and Hive Beach) in the local area.

Shame the pizza came so late, and my friend was a bit sad about the small garlic bread portion (I thought it was fine!)

Great place to eat. We had fish and chips which was the best fish I have tasted for a long time. Good service and very friendly. Prices a bit high but well worth it. We will definitely eat there again.

Great, attentive service in a lovely setting. The fish and chips and children's food was particularly good. We really enjoyed our visit.

Such a shame! It’s our go to place when we visit West Bay (and has been for years) but it was so disappointing and the food was mediocre at best. Service was wonderful as always.

The outside dining area at the Watch House was nicely laid out and looked more fit for purpose than some of the hastily built shelters that are being thrown up to cope with the current regulations. Food and service was as good as expected.

The (Bowie tattoo)waitress was good and the pizza was tasty. The salad came with chicken and bacon which was not indicated on the menu ( and the chicken in it was awful). My aperol spritzer was flat/not good. . Nice atmosphere.
