Brasserie at the Bay

£26 to £40
Modern European
Brasserie at the Bay is open 7 days a week. Sunday and Monday evenings we run our supper menu and Tuesday - Saturday we run our full A La Carte brasserie menu. We also do a Sunday lunch menu with tables available between 12pm & 2.30pm

With its new layout Brasserie at the Bay offers diners a spacious, yet intimate dining room, plus the option when weather allows, of enjoying al fresco dining too. Serving a modern British Menu with international influences, Chef Callum Tasker has once again returned to surprising and delighting Brasserie customers with his cuisine. Whilst ‘traditional’ diners have returned, the Brasserie is also continuing to support the local community with the very popular home delivery service it created at the commencement of lockdown.

Our dining capacity has reduced by 50% so please make sure you book a table in advance to avoid disappointment. At this time we can only accept pre-booked tables only.

What a delicious dinner. Some of the best food we had in the southwest. The highlights were definitely the scallops and that AMAZING banoffee tart!!

Our 3rd visit in the last 2 months. This time superb Carpaccio of Venison for me and Gin cured Salmon starter for my wife, both bursting with flavour. Followed by beautifully cooked Halibut mains for both (see menu), again full of flavour complementing the fish and to finish excellent desserts. The chef is very talented and highly skilled. Service is efficient, friendly and Covid safe. The Wine list is reasonable priced for the quality

Had a lovely meal here. Me and my partner both had the 28 day aged fillet steak and it was absolutely amazing :)
Only downside was that the banoffee tart was slight burnt on the top
Other then that it was a lovely meal thanks very much

Lovely outdoors eating on the terrace. Very tranquil with excellent service and wonderful food. Not too elaborate but just right; good traditional Sunday roast without being too much. Staff very attentive.

Although there were other diners in the restaurant, it lacked atmosphere.
The food and service was good.
Although, at no point when ordering our food did the waitress ask if we wanted to order any side dishes (potatoes, veg). We said, oh do we need to order potatoes.

We booked the restaurant for our first night and we were not disappointed the food was out of this world. Beautifully plated and tasted amazing. The breakfast also was of top quality. Cooked fresh. Even the granola which was so good was homemade! All local produce. Highly recommended

Outstanding fish and meat dishes cooked brilliantly, we both had the opportunity to try something new but there were also some safe dishes for those less adventurous. The service was excellent and the restaurant had a pleasant atmosphere.

The ambiance wasn’t helped by being seated by the kitchen door the service wasn’t great 1 waiter running around making quite a racket

As for the food no real taste with the starter, and the lamb main was very fatty and grisly afraid to say not a great experience

We selected Brasserie on the Bay on July 5 when restaurants started opening after lockdown. The security measures meant we felt safe and could thoroughly enjoy our delicious meal. Despite wearing facemasks the servers were friendly and approachable. Would definitely recommend.

We drove 20 miles to go to this establishment, as it was one of the few in the area, that offers Vegan options, not just veggie covered in cheese. Food was very good, and excellent value. On a February evening the restaurant was very quiet, but apart from that it was very good, Recommended.

Great stay at the Meadfoot Bay and our dinner at the Brasserie was an unexpected gem. We had thought it would be simple refuelling but found it to be a real treat. Lovely menu, beautifully presented ... we even had a pudding which is unusual for us.

The food was exceptional! My partner is a chef so usually finding places to eat is tricky, as his standards are naturally high, but we are so glad we found this is a little gem of a restaurant! Great value for money for such lovely tasty food! Also the bar staff were attentive and very polite too! would definitely recommend :)

It was a terrible night to go out but we had relatives visiting and I wanted to try Brasserie as had read good reviews, it was quiet to be expected on a windy rainy night but glad we did. The menu caters for all tastes with something for everyone, I had the sirloin steak cooked to perfection and added parmesan fries which were delicious, only comment to add perhaps a bit too much food as couldn't finish it all which was a great shame as it was all so appetising. Good starter choice had the fabulous goats cheese tart, yummy! dessert menu looked good but unfortunately couldn't manage. Good wine choice. Attentive staff. Clean and modern with a relaxed seating area for pre dinner drinks but not stuffy, classy! Would go again and recommend. Maybe next time just starter and pud!
